By the way, Carl DeLong would be about 77 now, if Brett Kimberlin had not built a bomb, and left it at a high school football game. DeLong left letters for his family before taking his life — and a court ruled his death was directly connected to the bombing years earlier.
Multiple sources confirm that Brett Kimberlin will not have to answer for perjury accusations involving documents in a lawsuit. He clearly changed documents – with one version going to the court and another version going to Aaron Walker.
