And to -- a Massachusetts judge is reopening a decades old investigation there.
-- bishop's brother died in Massachusetts you'll remember she was arrested eighty bishop shortly after the campus shooting.
Which left three other professors wounded.
And it was not long after police took her into custody that media reports -- the surface of -- shooting and killing her brother -- here's his picture.
From 24 years ago in Massachusetts.
That death was then ruled an accident but reports now indicate.
Prosecutors have discovered inconsistencies.
In the original case and those inconsistencies.
Lead them to call for an inquest.
Prosecutors tell us they were never told of claims that shortly after the shooting eighty bishop pulled a gun on workers at an auto body shop near her Massachusetts home.
In fact I spoke with -- one of the shop workers on this program in February listen.
But I hurt someone coming down but it -- And you might -- -- -- the door and as I opened the door we kind of garbled these other.
Did what I thought was the beauty got it turned out your shotgun.
That I kinda like bomb -- she bumped into me and I took the gun in the job.
It she's dead to me I have struggled well what's going on what you don't want to -- -- this problem we'll fight with my husband.
He's gonna kill me I need a card he got it yet.
The man you just heard Tom -- a group.
Is expected to testify in this case tomorrow witnessed now is -- sweet she's a reporter for the Boston Herald newspaper Lauren walk thank you.
Thank you very much what's happened in there now that this is pretty serious stuff.
It isn't very serious and in the we don't have many of these judicial inquest and that is that the fact that the first one and 2000 until they got.
Now concluded approximately five hours of testimony.
It was behind closed doors.
What it taught paper was here this morning -- -- coming back tomorrow.
And one of the most dramatic events to happen today.
We -- one -- go into the courtroom.
And that was 88 shot -- if we're told it's not the shotgun.
But -- it during a shotgun in in just a few minutes ago we could hear them actually pumping out from behind closed door and you could hear that.
The metal on metal action -- -- collecting -- who would appear somebody in there with demonstrating what happened that day in 1986 when that bishop died.
You know one of the investigators was saying sort of off Cameron quietly.
It looks like we really missed a lot in this case either that or a lot was kept from them.
The very interesting an end to the you know at.
The poignant moment to come out of that when you could have been told not to -- but of course some of them have many that were -- they -- we're retired police officers.
The earth when -- came out that that he spelled it field after the date it was an accident that police did everything possible.
And I'm alarmed or not they're saying he couldn't believe that anyone could kill -- -- That you followed by another retired police officer who -- who investigated the crime and he said that a lot of officers felt it was mishandled.
-- it to this day and fortunately no one ever went to authorities with their concern.
It's been a long time and convictions are very difficult to get -- -- in history tells us.
They're very difficult to get after all these years have you spoken with anyone who as an indication about.
How strongly feel the case may be here.
Well -- it.
Again that's very interesting that you -- quietly doing that the only charge they can hope to get out of this that that they can hope to bring to a grand jury.
-- murder the only one statue of limitations has run out on.
You know even -- charged in -- -- never be back now achieved the thought it would be Alabama it's gonna take precedent.
So the question is why are they going -- most of them and -- -- somebody just needed to do something but I -- -- they feel they've got something here.
If -- as you mentioned the effective at all may not be much.
It might not be much but you know what except -- -- Somewhere maybe it's enough.
