/> The Regency Tower tape turns to static at the moment of the explosion.

Also, The Oklahoman in 2006 published images from inside the damaged Journal Record Building. The Oklahoman obtained the Journal Record Building videotapes from a source.

FBI agents did not report finding any security tapes from the Murrah Building itself. Agents reported a cleaner, a loan company and another business in nearby buildings had surveillance cameras, but the buildings’ owner said "all ... are ‘dummy’ cameras and nothing is videotaped.”

Agents also reported that security cameras at the federal courthouse directly south of the Murrah Building were connected to monitors only and had no tape backup.

McVeigh was executed in 2001. Co-conspirator Terry Nichols is serving life in prison for his role.

The FBI in the past refused to release the security camera recordings. Their refusal led some — including a U.S. congressman — to contend the government was hiding evidence that others were involved in the attack.

Trentadue began a personal inquiry into the bombing after his brother died at the Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center in August 1995. He contends guards mistook his brother for a bombing suspect and killed his brother during an interrogation. The official cause of his brother’s death is listed as suicide.
