The Associated Press A sheriff's deputy talks to the bank robber Friday during a blizzard before the episode was ended with the robber being killed. Hostage was held with explosives Police gun down robber after 16-hour standoff in blizzard By The Associated Press HOUGHTON, Mich. — A man strapped explosives to a hostage when his bank robbery attempt went awry, then held police at bay for 16 hours during a blizzard until officers shot him dead Friday. The hostage, bank teller Tracy Immonen, was released unharmed after police detached the explosives. Police would not identify the man, but The Daily Mining Gazette of Houghton said he was John Segreto, 25, a contributor of rambling letters to the paper who had a history of mental illness. The man even called the paper during the standoff. "I want to give a demonstrated proof of good and evil in this world," he said, then hung up. The stalemate began Thursday afternoon when a man with a shotgun tried to rob the MFC First Na- T SIMPSON TRIAL tional Bank in Houghton, a town of 7,500 in the Upper Peninsula. After police arrived, the man fired two shots, hitting a bank employee in the leg, stomach and chest. Lori Raffaelli, 34, was in serious condition Friday at Marquette General Hospital. He then took Immonen and another female employee and left the, building with some money, police said. He released the other, woman, attached "an explosive de-/ vice" to Immonen and put her u\ the back seat of a car. The man tried to drive off, but. police shot at least two of the car's tires and forced it to stop a block, away, just across the street from the police department. .° There they remained, for 16 hours. As police tried to talk the, man out, a blizzard dumped 30' inches of snow and wind chills* plunged to 28 below zero. Immonen said the man kept the, car running through the night. : About 8 a.m. Friday, after he repeatedly refused to give up, the. man was shot. Attorneys get shot at OJ. on Monday Acquitted football star must answer questions for civil proceedings By The Associated Press SANTA MONICA, Calif. — The much-anticipated grilling of O.J. Simpson by lawyers pursuing civil claims against him for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman is set for Monday, sources said. The judge in the civil case barred lawyers from revealing the date of the deposition, but sources confirmed it Friday. Simpson never took the stand in his criminal trial, which ended in his acquittal in October. He gave SIMPSON his only extensive interview,, about the night of the murders to, t police, and jurors were never told! what he said. Simpson has produced a video-, tape for sale through mail-order in ; which he gives his side of some of'' the issues. The lawyers have demanded to see it, along with all the , outtakes, but the video's produc- • ers filed a motion Friday hoping to delay submission for fear of a leak that would reduce their profits. Two companies Simpson was depending on to help distribute • the video have bailed out, said the i tape's producer, Tony Hoffman. , Simpson's deposition is likely to j! take several days, and then he'll ji still probably have to come back '' for more. Daniel Petrocelli, lawyer for Goldman's family, said lawyers likely j| won't question Simpson at first ij about his finances because many |! documents will be unavailable. ! i ON THE RECORD T MISSING CHILDREN Pictures to be posted at buildings By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — After Jimmy Ryce was abducted in the Miami area last year, his parents posted his picture in public buildings in the desperate hope that someone — anyone — would report seeing' him. In some of the buildings, the pictures were removed. They had not been "authorized." On Friday, as Claudine and Don Ryce watched, President Clinton acted to ensure that won't happen again. He signed an executive order to set aside space in every federal building for such pictures and urged people to inspect them closely. "It's more than a bulletin board you're going to have here. This is a helping hand going out to the parents," Claudine Ryce said. "The child, remember, could be anywhere. They're taken in one location, but they're often taken a thousand miles away."
