Oklahoma City Bombing By Timothy Mcveigh
He turned his Arizona home into a bunker, renounced his US citizenship and began making homemade bombs. The same recipe he used in the Oklahoma City bombing (Linder 2006). In September 1994, McVeigh began making plans to blow up the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. McVeigh began stock-piling his ingredients for his bomb in a storage facility he rented in Herington, Kansas. McVeigh and his co-conspirators continued collecting all the ingredients they needed in their plot which included ammonium nitrate, dynamite, blasting caps, and nitromethane. Then on April 19, 1995, McVeigh drove the Ryder truck that he rented from a body shop in Junction City, Kansas towards the center of downtown Oklahoma City. He parked the truck in a handicapped zone in front of Alfred P. Murrah federal building (Saferstein pg. ), he lit two fuses, stepped out of the truck, locked the doors, and strolled away from the truck. Within minutes, the truck exploded with enough destructive force to demolish the federal building and kill 168 people that included 19 children and infants.
