Infamous ‘Unabomber’ Ted Kaczynski Dies in Prison
The Federal Bureau of Prisons has verified that Ted Kaczynski, a.k.a. the Unabomber, was found dead in his North Carolina jail cell on Saturday. The 81-year-old was transferred from a maximum-security prison in Colorado due to declining health. He was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for a string of bombings that killed three lives.
Kaczynski’s death’s precise cause is still unknown at this time. He was imprisoned after being detained in 1996 at his home in a rustic cabin in western Montana. Kaczynski has admitted to planning 16 bombs between 1978 and 1995 that were directed at academic institutions and scientists around the nation. Three people were killed and 23 people were hurt as a result of these bombings. As a result of his acts, he was labelled a domestic terrorist.
A almost two-decade reign of terror in which Theodore J. Kaczynski planted homemade explosives or sent them over the mail to different locations, including institutions and private residences, came to an end with his capture in 1996. Kaczynski was apprehended, admitted guilt to the bombings in 1998, and was consequently given a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
The news of Kaczynski’s passing marks the end of a bloody and terrifying period in American history. His actions have left a lasting impression on society, serving as a stark warning about the dangers of homegrown terrorism.
