Holocaust Museum Shooter's FBI File Went Back 47 Years





The Associated Press has obtained documents showing that James von Brunn, who died before he could stand trial in the shooting death of a Holocaust museum security guard, first came to the FBI's attention 47 years ago, when he was accused of making a death threat over a business dispute.

The FBI released documents about the 1963 incident in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from the AP.

Von Brunn denied making the threat, and authorities declined to prosecute.
