Famous Unabomber Killer Found Dead In His Cell

(IntegrityPress.org) – Although an official cause of death has not yet been established, sources have claimed that Ted Kaczynski, the convicted terrorist known as the Unabomber, may have committed suicide in his jail cell early on the morning of Saturday, June 9, at the age of 81.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons reports that Kaczynski was declared dead after being taken to a nearby hospital after being found comatose in his cell at roughly 12:30 am eastern time. Due to his declining health, Kaczynski had been transferred from a maximum-security facility in Colorado to a federal medical center in Butner, North Carolina, in December 2021.

Kaczynski gained notoriety as America’s most prolific bomber, evading capture for nearly 20 years until his arrest in 1996. He pleaded guilty in 1998 to mailing bombs that resulted in the deaths of three individuals and injured 23 others between 1978 and 1995—for which he received eight life sentences.

The FBI dedicated significant efforts over the course of two decades to apprehend Kaczynski, who constructed untraceable bombs and targeted random victims. The initial bomb was sent to a university in Chicago in 1978, leading the FBI to establish a task force, known as the “UNABOM” case, to investigate the bombings targeting universities, airlines, and various locations.

Kaczynski was ultimately apprehended in 1996 at a secluded cabin in western Montana. In December 2021, he was relocated to the federal medical center in North Carolina after being held at Supermax in Florence, Colorado. Kaczynski was a mathematician with a Harvard education. His actions changed how the mail system handles packages, and cargo airport security as a whole.

His victims included people from academia, and also those associated with technology. Kaczynski later distributed a manifesto to multiple media outlets, containing over 30,000 words. His acts and the manifesto itself have influenced both the far right and the far left.
