Feds To Give Update On Monroe Car Bombing

MONROE (WWJ/AP) – Federal authorities in Detroit will be giving an update Thursday on their investigation of a car bombing in Monroe nearly six months ago.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives called for the news conference because they say the investigation has reached a “sticking point” and more information is needed.

Monroe lawyer Erik Chappell and two sons, Grant and Cole were injured when a bomb attached to his car exploded last September, about 35 miles southwest of Detroit.

Chappell has said he believes he knows who’s responsible.

ATF spokesman Donald Dawkins says there are people of interest but no arrests have been made.
