WASHINGTON, D.C. (2/6/13) – The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Dale County Sheriff’s Office and the Alabama Department of Public Safety have released four high-resolution photographs of the hostage-standoff scene in Midland, Alabama, where Jimmy Dykes held a 5-year-old boy captive for nearly a week.
For security and investigational reasons, law enforcement has prohibited the release of photos up until now.
During the actual incident, almost a week went by before law enforcement ultimately entered the bunker and the child was rescued.
Among the photos released are pictures of the area where a tent covers the bunker where FBI agents placed the blue tent over the bunker to protect evidence below, a pipe that was used to communicate with Jimmy Dykes, and a secured area.
