    • Morgan: …I also know that Richard Jewell fit the profile of the Olympic Bomber to a "T"…

      During the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, a security guard named Richard Jewell noticed a suspicious backpack in Centennial Olympic Park. Jewell notified authorities and helped evacuate the park, ultimately saving many lives. A bomb inside the backpack went off, killing one person and injuring over one hundred. A story appeared in a local paper the next day, identifying Jewell as a suspect in the investigation, and, for the next four months the FBI subjected Jewell to a botched investigation, and the national press made Jewell's life miserable. He was formally cleared of all charges in October, 1996, but the damage to his reputation had already been done.
