CHICAGO (CBS) — A Chicago woman who lost her father and stepmother in the crash of TWA Flight 800 in 1996 said she doesn’t believe claims made in a new documentary that the plane was brought down by a missile and was covered up by government investigators.
WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports Tiffany Rhoads Olson understands the anger and the outrage that some of the other victims’ families are feeling.
For her, hearing claims the plane was shot down by a missile opens old wounds.
“It was a good ten years of our lives dealing with the investigation and the aftermath, so once you try to get over it, it’s hard. You make a choice to ignore it, and that’s what I’m kind of trying to do, is just ignore it,” she said.
