Bomb Suspect Surveillance Reduced

Associated Press

Richard Jewell’s lawyers are negotiating what they hope will be a final interview with federal authorities in an effort to clear him as a suspect in the Olympic park bombing, USA Today reports.

Lawyers for Jewell also said federal agents have reduced their surveillance of the former security guard and are going to return the property they seized from him in their investigation of the July 27 bombing in Centennial Olympic Park that killed one person and wounded 111.

FBI agents had been maintaining around-the-clock surveillance outside Jewell’s apartment.
