'Unabomber' Ted Kaczynski Reportedly Dies of Suicide in His Prison Cell at 81
Kaczynski terrorized the United States for nearly two decades, sending bombs through the mail.
Infamous for terrorizing the United States for nearly two decades, the man known as “The Unabomber” has died in federal prison.
Just after midnight Saturday, Theodore “Ted” Kaczynski was found unresponsive in his prison cell in North Carolina, according to CBS News. He was pronounced dead around 8 a.m.
Kaczyinski was reportedly transferred to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons' FMC Butner, a medical center, for undisclosed reasons in 2021.
Prior to that transfer, he was held at the ADX Florence Federal Supermax prison in Colorado.
Between 1978 and 1995 Kaczyinski mailed bombs that killed three people and injured 24.
The hunt for Kaczyinski ended in April 1996, after his brother David recognized his handwriting in a manifesto published in newspapers and reported him to authorities.
The Associated Press reports he had been diagnosed with late-stage cancer and took his own life.
