Auction Of Unabomber Mementos Wraps Up
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An unusual weekslong auction of the Unabomber’s property meant to benefit his victims is wrapping up.
U.S. District Court Judge Garland Burrell Jr. ordered the online auction of Ted Kaczynski’s personal items such as his hooded sweat shirt, sunglasses and handwritten “manifesto” railing against technology.
The judge ordered Kaczynski to pay $15 million to his bombing victims in addition to serving life without parole. The auction proceeds will contribute to that total.
The 69-year-old pleaded guilty in 1998 to setting 16 explosions that killed three people, including two in Sacramento, Calif., and injured 23 others in various parts of the country.
The auction ends Thursday afternoon.
