CHICAGO (CBS/AP) — U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) says he wants some answers after the Aurora Control Center sabotage on Friday.
Durbin says he will ask inspectors general at the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration to investigate whether there was a security breach when 36-year-old Brian Howard entered the building with a black suitcase.
“I think from this point forward, the inspection and the vetting of these personnel has got to be a lot better,” Durbin said.
Brian Howard, 36, of Naperville, who had access to the control center in suburban Aurora via a swipe card, entered around 5 a.m. Friday, and about 30 minutes later posted a suicide note on Facebook, according to a federal criminal complaint.
