The report by the Office of Independent Review is the first outside examination of thousands of pages of Sheriff’s Department records in a killing that has been clouded by suspicion, controversy and criticism for 40 years. The 20-page report, which provides previously unreleased details about the case, does not assign blame or wrongdoing, noting that its purpose is to review a historic incident from the perspective of modern-day policing and current department policies and procedures.
