Today Sheriff Ted Mink announced that the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office will release 936 pages of documents seized from the Harris and Klebold homes and vehicles after the Columbine High School shootings. The Sheriff's Office is prepared to release the records as soon as possible. However, their release will be delayed because the Colorado Supreme Court's decision on this matter gives the Harris and Klebold families legal standing to challenge the sheriff's decision to release any documents. In order to comply with the mandates of the decision, the sheriff must permit the Harris and Klebold families time to file any formal challenge to the release of the records. The Sheriff's Office will notify the media with details about the records' release date and how the records may be obtained.
Sheriff Ted Mink will be available for media interviews beginning at 10 a.m. on June 19 at the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. Interviews with Sheriff Mink will be embargoed until 4 p.m. on June 19. To schedule an interview, please contact Jacki Kelley at 303-271-5697.
