    • Documentary

After Investigators tie the name Robert D. Kling from a rental agreement for a Ryder Truck, the nationwide manhunt descends upon the Noble County, Oklahoma Jail and a man arrested in a Mercury Marquis for failing to display a proper license plate. The world learned his name for the first time: Timothy James McVeigh. Who was he? Where did he come from? We'll start with his life in New York, his impressive military service, and the events that shaped his worldview - a view on full display in letters recovered by investigators. Peppered with quotes from 3 of the lawyers that tried the case - Larry Mackey for the Prosecution, Stephen Jones and Christopher Tritico for Mr. McVeigh - we will seek to uncover the author responsible for the formation and execution of A Murderous Design. The entire transcript of the trial is available at Oklahoman.com. Based on these transcripts, the first 6 episodes of this podcast document the trial. The following 3 contain the full interviews from Mr. Mackey, Mr. Jones and Mr. Tritico. In the final episode of A Murderous Design, we sit down with journalist and Timothy McVeigh Biographer Lou Michel, who, along with Dan Herbeck wrote the New York Times Best Seller "American Terrorist."
