Sheriff: Bomber Dead; Family OK in Panaca Blast

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Officials say that man with two powerful bombs killed himself detonating a vehicle outside and an explosive inside a home after a woman and two girls fled for their lives in a quiet Nevada town.

Lincoln County Sheriff Kerry Lee says Thursday that investigators believe they know who the bomber was, and that he knew the family. Lee declined to immediately identify the man or say more about his relationship with the family.

Lee tells The Associated Press in a brief telephone interview that investigators were also checking an Arizona address with links to the man.

Lee says all five family members are accounted for, but their house was deemed unsafe as soon as firefighters determined there was no one inside.
