Materials linked to a bomb that appeared on Ohio’s Interstate 71 in late 2006 were discovered this week at Simply Self Storage in Norwood. A man who won the contents of a delinquent self-storage unit at auction opened it to find books on how to make bombs, wires, batteries and other chemicals.
The unit belonged to David McMullin, who passed away, leaving the storage rent unpaid. The unit went to lien sale and was sold.
On Nov. 29, 2006, a suspicious incendiary device found at Interstate 71 and the Williams Avenue Overpass caused officials to shut down the freeway for eight hours. Analysis of the device has demonstrated a link to Monday’s storage-unit discovery.
The original case had grown very cold until this week. Police now say both cases are closed, as there are no other individuals tied to them.
