The examination was conducted by a retired FBI polygraph expert,Richard Rackleff, who was paid by Richards's attorney.

In October 1996, it became obvious that Mr. Jewell had not beeninvolved in the bombing at the At&t center and the Justice Department cleared him.Richard Jewell later died at the age of 44 of natural causes in his home inWoodbury, Georgia. Since the bombing and before his death, he had sued the FBI andmedia organization. It was found that later in April of 2005 a person named Eric RobertRudolph had pleaded guilty to the bombing.
