OKLAHOMA CITY, Utah (AP) -- New details surrounding the Oklahoma City bombing emerge.

With the 12th anniversary of the bombing just days away, a Utah attorney now says he believes he knows who the so-called John Doe Number Two was.

Back in April 1995, some witnesses claimed they saw a dark-haired muscular man with Timothy McVeigh just days before the bombing. However, he was never found and investigators later decided he likely never existed.

Now Salt Lake City attorney, Jesse Trentadue, believes the man was convicted bank robber Richard Lee Guthrie Junior, who is now dead.

Trentadue believes his brother, Kenneth Trentadue, was killed by federal investigators during an interrogation because they thought he was John Doe Number Two. He says his brother resembles Guthrie.

FBI officials say they believe everyone responsible for the bombing has been prosecuted.
