Lawyer Involved In Car Bombing Thinks He Knows Who Did It

DETROIT (WWJ) – The Michigan attorney whose car was bombed while he and his two sons were inside believes he knows who did it but won’t comment because the investigation remains open.

Speaking with the Associated Press outside the federal courthouse in Detroit Tuesday, Erik Chappell said “I do” when asked if he knows who’s responsible. But Chappell said he doesn’t want to say more as the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives continues its investigation.

Chappell and his sons, Grant and Cole, suffered injuries when a bomb attached to his Volvo exploded in Monroe Sept 20.  Chappell said he suffered burns to his nose and wounds to his right arm.

His sons are on the mend, said Chappell, but he wouldn’t comment further, saying only “It’s been a road.”

Chappell’s law firm has offices in Monroe and Sylvania, Ohio, a Toledo suburb.
