She her husband questioned after a package with 2 bombs with central -- professor back in 1993.
The bonds and never went off and there's been no evidence ever linking in the coupled to the case.
-- bishop was arrested on Friday in the shootings at the University of Alabama Huntsville after he was denied tenure.
The new details today coming after we've learned over the weekend that -- shot and killed her brother.
Back in 1986 he claimed it was accidentally just discharge authorities in Massachusetts never charge her for that.
Joining us now with the very latest is the possibility at investigative crime reporter who's joining us now with more on the story welcome.
I understand it -- had an argument with her brother prior to the shooting -- why did police simply backed away from this and not departure.
Well what's interesting and mine is at the time in 1986.
When this case broke out.
I did speak with the former police chief his name is mr.
polio in his home last night and what he told me flies.
That they responded to the scene and that she had allegedly shot her brother.
And that her mom -- -- -- had come forward to say hey look this was an accident the shotgun allegedly went off I was trying to show her how to take.
How to not change it out and this is all a big accident in a big misunderstanding so the cheap at the time.
-- could not move -- work with pressing charges until.
The initial investigation was done this is what he tells me.
But also at the same point which she polio said with that he turned the investigation over to the state of Massachusetts and that district attorney also decided to rule this case as an accidental shooting.
So this is something again it happened in 1986 the current police chief of the Braintree police department.
-- has released a statement a very detailed statement saying that those particular records have not been found within within his department.
But actually those records do in fact exist according to the former police chief.
-- the state of Massachusetts and again because that -- the district attorney appointment this targets.
And talk to about the -- pipe bomb situation that developed where she and her husband to war.
Being looked at as possible suspects in the case again.
No charges filed in that case as well.
Well again you're right and missiles back in 1993.
And reportedly doctor bishop was question and also her husband was questioned as well.
And their -- few bombs that were sent to a Harvard professor.
And apparently and again that -- this is according to reports with that she received a -- valuation.
And so of course I'm -- that particular point investigators went and they wanted to see who may have been an enemy at this particular professor.
And she and her you know because of these evaluations possibly that's why they probably looked at her and many other people but at this point to my understanding.
That case is still unsolved.
There's some really troubling aspects to her background -- from what we're hearing she apparently has.
Trouble with authority figures and claimed that her husband saying that she was unfairly denied tenure.
In her present job and also benefit she's writing a novel where scientists.
Actually killed her brother I there's companies crazy things coming out -- know background.
If this is just extremely.
Rare to happy female professor.
Shooter on the campus this is someone.
Who is sent there to protect our children.
And to protect that the people on campus and to prevent these kinds of tragedies from happening and you see you've seen these kind of things averaging attack and and many other schools students across the nation but never would you think.
It would actually be a professor targeting their colleagues allegedly.
If she is in fact act convicted of these crimes.
And also I do want to mention that not only that but I you know which is very troubling that -- a lot of these cases you see a lot of males come forward but in this case.
This is -- -- now and this is someone who has received mixed reviews on -- some of them I've read from students edit critique her work some -- -- see that she's brilliant and a genius.
Others say that she it just goes off course and and it kind of crazy in a lot of ways this is the mother this is a wife.
This is a family member and the fact she's facing some pretty serious charges of capital murder.
And attempted murder and she could possibly be facing the death penalty.
