Bombing Developments

THE SCENE: The search for victims was set back when a slab of concrete broke loose and slid into the area that held a Social Security office and day-care center. The death toll rose to 121, including 15 children.

NICHOLS HEARING: A custody hearing for material witness James Nichols was delayed when a group hired an attorney for him, apparently without his knowledge. Nichols, who is being held at the federal prison in Milan, Mich., was given the choice of being represented by Robert Elsey or by court-appointed lawyers.

THE MANHUNT: A videotape made before the bombing shows Timothy McVeigh’s Arizona license plate LZC646 on a vehicle other than the yellow Mercury, and authorities believe it may have been used as a getaway car for “John Doe 2,” a law enforcement source in Washington told The Associated Press. He would not describe the vehicle. A third, more detailed sketch of the second bomber may be released within the next few days, the source added.

WHAT’S NEXT: The bail hearing in Milan, Mich., for James Nichols was recessed until Tuesday with no change in his status.
