Civil rights supporters are calling for the FBI and Justice Department to reopen the investigation into the 1985 killing of a prominent Palestinian American leader, Democracy Now reports.

Alex Odeh was killed by a powerful pipe bomb placed at the offices of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination in Santa Ana, Calif., where he served as group’s western regional director.

The FBI’s focus was on the Jewish Defense League, according to Democracy Now.

But no one has been arrested.

“Despite 28 years of knocking on the doors of justice, we have not found it yet. Alex was a very peaceful man,” says Albert Mokhiber, former president of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. “He was known as an activist, in not just the Arab-American movement and Palestinian issues, but civil rights in general.”

In the eyes of authorities, Luis Mijangos was a skilled computer hacker who went on the rampage and tried  to extort sexually explicit videos from women and girls.

The FBI arrested the 31-year-old  Santa Ana, Calif. man on Tuesday without incident.

Authorities said that FBI computer forensics experts  determined that  Mijangos infected more than 100 computers that were used by approximately 230 individuals,   of which at least 44  were  juveniles.

The affidavit in the case alleged that Mijangos infected computers around the world with a malicious computer code, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Mijangos then got his victims to download “the malware onto their computers by making the files appear to be popular songs,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office stated Tuesday.  “After the victims downloaded the malware, Mijangos was able to control their computers, allowing him to send instant messages containing malware from those computers to other people in the victims’ address books. These later victims thought they were receiving messages from friends or family members.”
