A Massachusetts judge has ruled that a transcript and report from an inquest into the 1986 death of the brother of Alabama professor Amy Bishop will not be released publicly.
Norfolk Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Bowen Donovan on Friday rejected a request from the Globe Newspaper Co. Inc. to unseal the documents related to an inquest held to investigate the death of 18-year-old Seth Bishop.
Massachusetts authorities began reinvestigating Seth Bishop's death after Amy Bishop was charged in a February shooting rampage at the University of Alabama-Huntsville. Amy Bishop, a biology professor, is accused of killing three colleagues and injuring three others.
A Massachusetts grand jury this week indicted Amy Bishop on a murder charge in her brother's death, which had originally been ruled an accident.
