OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — One man’s quest to explain his brother’s mysterious jail cell death has rekindled long-dormant questions about whether others were involved in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the federal government goes to trial Monday in Utah.

Trentadue believes the FBI is refusing to release security-camera videos that show a second person was with Timothy McVeigh minutes before he parked a truck outside the Oklahoma City federal building and detonated a bomb, killing 168 people. The government claims McVeigh was alone.

U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups has ordered the agency to explain why it can’t find videos from the bombing that are mentioned in evidence logs, citing the public importance of the tapes.
