Oklahoma City bombing video trial to begin next week in Utah

A trial over videotapes that purport to show the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City will begin here next week.

Jesse Trentadue is suing the CIA and FBI, demanding the agencies release surveillance video of the bombing that killed 168. But the federal government claims the tapes don’t exist anymore.

he trial is tied to Trentadue’s lawsuit against the federal government over the death of his brother, Kenneth, who died in a prison cell in Oklahoma in 1995. The federal government claimed Kenneth Trentadue’s death was a suicide. Jesse Trentadue said his brother’s corpse had bruises and lacerations.

“It’s obvious he’s been tortured and murdered,” Jesse Trentadue told FOX 13 News in a 2001 interview.

Jesse Trentadue has said the FBI believed at the time Kenneth may have been a co-conspirator in the Oklahoma City bombing. Trentadue won a wrongful death lawsuit that is currently under appeal by the federal government.
