No Evidence Links Ex-Paramedic to West Blast: DA

Bryce Reed.

The Texas Rangers have turned up no evidence linking a former paramedic from a small Central Texas town to a fire and explosion at a fertilizer plant in the town.

The West Fertilizer plant explosion April 17 killed 15 people, injured hundreds and devastated a large chunk of the town of West, near Waco.

McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna said the Rangers report showed no evidence to link Bryce Ashley Reed to the blast. Reyna told the Waco Tribune-Herald, however, that he still has more material to review.

Reed remains jailed on federal charges that he possessed bomb-making materials. He recently completed a court-ordered mental evaluation.
