Police detonate length of PVC pipe in Dr. Amy Bishop’s, Huntsville, Alabama home
It was several Fridays ago that Dr. Amy Bishop entered a University of Alabama-Huntsville Biology Department staff meeting and shot up her colleagues, killing 3.
Today, Huntsville Police entered her home, and this happened:
Our crew also reports seeing a small robot enter the home, followed by a small boom, then a larger boom. Dr. Amy Bishop was arrested one month ago today. She’s accused of shooting six colleagues during a biology department meeting on the UA Huntsville campus.
If I hear about ‘booms,’ I’m guessing bombs. And that’s very curious given the story of her Dr. Paul Rosenberg, a Boston-area doctor who was evaluating Bishop’s doctoral research. Rosenberg received two pipe bombs in the mail in 1994 some time after he gave a negative evaluation to Bishop’s work. Her husband, James Anderson, insists that he and Bishop received a letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms officially notifying them that they had not been suspects in the case, according to the Boston Globe.
However, the feds later told the Globe that this wasn’t true. Anderson insists that the letter exists and he would procure it.
Is there a connection here? We’ll find out.
Update: Well, this is bizarro. From the Huntsville Times:
Police spokesman Sgt. Mark Roberts said officers found the section of pipe this afternoon while executing a search warrant. When members of the bomb squad sent in a robot to destroy the piece of pipe, they realized it wasn’t an explosive device.
So, apparently the police following on these reports from Boston got a little freaked out when they found some PVC pipe? Is that all it takes to rattle the police down there?
