I've done some research into this and I've found that copies of this footage may exist. The tape was called quad tape (2inch tape) and it was huge, it wasn't some small flimsy type of footage, this was huge. And the police wouldn't have been able to play it, so therefore the station had to make a copy of that footage on a different format playable on equipment the police could view. It's also been said the station manager let people view the footage and may've given copies to other people and was going to sell it to a station in New York but evidently the Chubbuck family got an injuction to stop it from happening. I've heard that the FCC got a copy, through someone who knows someone who has worked at the FCC for twenty years, but they weren't even allowed to view it. I've also heard the FBI has it on "training" tapes in Quantico and I've also heard it was leaked but quickly pulled from the internet a long time ago.
Whether or not it will be leaked again (if it was in the first place) who knows. I'm very curious to see it.
Sorry if I'm bumping an old thread, bt I just thought I'd post this for anyone still interested.
