VIDEOTAPE PLACES MCVEIGH NEAR THE SITE OF TRUCK RENTAL

A videotape from a McDonald's restaurant security camera shows Timothy McVeigh buying a hamburger minutes before he allegedly rented the truck used in the Oklahoma City bombing, CBS News reported.

The videotape shows McVeigh for about two minutes at a McDonald's in Junction City, Kan., CBS said Thursday, citing unidentified sources. Later, McVeigh is believed to have rented a Ryder truck from nearby Elliott's Body Shop.The tape provides prosecutors with physical evidence of McVeigh's presence at the time, and that's important because of conflicting testimony among witnesses who said they saw McVeigh at the shop, CBS said.
