No Grand Jury on Death of Columbine Student

January 04, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Federal and county prosecutors declined to convene a grand jury to look into allegations that a police officer accidentally killed a student during the 1999 Columbine High School massacre.

Gov. Bill Owens said he would not ask for an investigation, and U.S. Atty. John Suthers said no federal crimes have been alleged.

"We have no reason to believe there was anything criminal that took place during the investigation," said Pam Russell, spokeswoman for Jefferson County Dist. Atty. Dave Thomas.

The parents of some slain students have said they have proof that an officer accidentally shot student Daniel Rohrbough and that authorities tried to conceal it.
