Unabomber (Ted Kaczynski)


Considered a mathematical child prodigy, Ted Kaczynski attended Harvard at the age of 16. After completing his PHD and a short time spent as a professor Ted moved to a remote cabin where he attempted to become self sufficient. It was from here that he started a mail bombing spree that spanned over 20 years. Spurred by the destruction of the wilderness around his home he used bombings to attract attention for his cause. He sent a letter to authorities claiming to stop the bombings if the Times or Washington Post printed his manifesto. It was through this letter that he was eventually apprehended.
