Victims to Benefit from Online Auction of Unabomber’s Belongings


An online auction of “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski’s personal items begins Wednesday, with proceeds to compensate some of his victims. CNN reports that the 60 items up for sale include personal documents such as driver’s licenses, birth certificates and checks; academic transcripts; typewriters, and “more than 20,000 pages of written documents, including the original handwritten and typewritten versions” of Kaczynski’s manifesto. The auction runs through June 2.

The auction, conducted by the General Services Administration, includes items seized from the Montana cabin where Kaczynski lived. Kaczynski, now 68, killed three people and wounded 23 others in a string of bombings from 1978 to 1995. He was arrested in 1996, pleaded guilty in 1998 and is now serving a life term in the federal “Supermax” prison in Florence, Colo. Four of his victims are owed $15 million in court-ordered restitution.
