Unabomber Cabin Auction $`190,000, The very technology that the Unabomber railed against during his murderous spree was used Thursday to help some of his victims.
An unusual online auction of Ted Kaczynski’s personal items that ended Thursday garnered about $190,000 for his victims and their family members. They want the so-called Unabomber to pay for the 16 explosions he set off that killed three and injured 23 others across the country.
Kaczynski’s personal journals fetched $40,676; the iconic hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses depicted in police sketch artist renderings accounted for $20,025; and his handwritten “manifesto” sold for $20,053. Other popular items included $22,003 for the Smith Corona typewriter used to write manifestos sent to newspapers and later seized from the cabin and $17,780 for his autobiography.
The manifesto laid out Kaczynski’s belief that modern technology was eroding human freedoms and that his bombings were necessary to spark a large-scale revolution. The pursuit of Kaczynski became one of the longest and costliest investigations in the FBI’s history.
