Unsealed court records in connection with a bomb making suspect in Beaver Dam, Wis., show investigators found potential homemade bombs and white supremacist literature in the suspect’s apartment after a March explosion in the unit.
The explosion killed suspect Benjamin Morrow and damaged his unit and other parts of his Beaver Dam apartment complex. Authorities said removing materials from the blast scene was too dangerous, so a controlled detonation and later a controlled burn were used to destroy the potentially explosive material.
Unsealed Dodge County court search warrant records show state justice department division of criminal investigation agent Kevin Heimerl found 13 medium-sized jars of potentially “finished TATP explosive material” in the apartment refrigerator. Experts say TATP is often seen used in homemade explosives and has been found in bombings worldwide. Heimerl said containers labeled TATP were found in Morrow’s apartment garage.
