Bob Troester, first assistance U.S. attorney in Oklahoma City, said the department requested the warrant be sealed, but declined to elaborate when asked why it was necessary to do so given previous media reports that a depressed Hinrichs acted alone and on a whim.
"You can draw whatever assumption you like," he said. We don't comment on any sealed indictments."
Law. A written statement charging a party with the commission of a crime or other offense, drawn up by a prosecuting attorney and found and presented by a grand jury.

Indictments??? Who's talking about indictments, he was supposed to be speaking about a search warrant.
- Hinrichs attended a nearby mosque, the same one apparently attended by the "20th hijacker" of 9/11, Zaccarias Moussaoui. Moussaoui attended the same Norman, OK, flight school attended by 9/11 mastermind Mohammed Atta and another of the hijackers.
- Hinrichs joined the Triangle engineering fraternity at OU but soon thereafter dropped out for a year, then took up residence in the university owned apartment complex known as "Little Tehran" in Norman rather than returning to the Triangle house.
- Hinrichs' roommate in the apartment is reportedly a Palestinian national.
- Authorities discovered bomb-making materials in Hinrichs' apartment, including a substance known as "Mother of Satan" among Islamofascist terrorist bombmakers.

The party can be anyone, the commission will be the crime, the attorney of course is the lawyer and they can be in the process of giving it to a jury. It is just a formal way of saying they wish to charge the person with a crime even after death.

Are they trying to indict him with kiling himself? or destroying the back of the park bench?
Just trying to get this straight mind you.
A man whose brother blew himself up outside the University of Oklahoma's packed football stadium last year has been arrested on suspicion of threatening to assault an FBI agent in Colorado.
Police who arrested the younger Hinrichs said he had a Romanian-made assault rifle, ammunition, a military helmet, a ballistic vest, a knife, knee pads, a flashlight and other gear in his car and was carrying another knife.
The younger Hinrichs told a Colorado Springs officer he had the rifle because of an FBI agent named Todd, the FBI said in an affidavit filed Tuesday in Denver federal court. The agent's last name was not listed.
Hinrichs also told the officer the FBI had harassed him and then became agitated and screamed "I will settle it," the FBI document said.
He later told FBI investigators he had abandoned the idea of killing the agent, the document said.
The FBI said it had opened its domestic terrorism investigation of the younger Thomas Hinrichs the day after his brother's death but closed it six months later after determining he hadn't made any specific threats. It was not clear why the investigation was opened.
The investigation was reopened in August 2006 after the younger Hinrichs left a telephone message with the FBI saying he was angry at the federal government and blaming schools for his brother's death, the FBI affidavit said. He left a second message in October saying "I will ... bury you, do you understand, I will bury you," the affidavit said.
