Bombing Remains A Mystery 2 Years After Rattling Nevada Town


LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada sheriff says he still doesn't have a clue why a man with a bomb blew up a family's home and killed himself in an attack that terrorized the tiny southern Nevada town of Panaca.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Friday marked the two-year anniversary of the bomb attack, and Lincoln County Sheriff Kerry Lee says he's no closer to knowing why Glenn Franklin Jones carried out the suicide bombing or where he got the explosives.

Lee says he's eager to hear from the FBI or the Nevada Department of Public Safety's Investigation Division about the case.

Lee says the last he heard from the FBI was before the first anniversary of the bombing.

Lee says the case will probably remain open until his agency gets word that the larger investigation has ended, assuming that ever happens.
