How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Unabomber Auction Produces $225,000 for Victims

The recent auction that sold off belongings of Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski –including his journals and sun glasses — is paying off for the victims of his evil deeds.

The Los Angeles Times reports that checks totaling $225,000 from the auction were sent to four victims. A federal judge in Sacramento ordered the disbursement last week.

The LA Times reported that the online government auction, which ended June 2, included the typewriter Kaczynski used to compose the manifesto he sent to the New York Times and the Washington Post. That sold for $22,003.

His hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses depicted in an FBI sketch of the Unabomber suspect sold together for $20,025, the paper reported. And his personal journals sold for $40,676.

The paper reports that Kaczynski is currently serving a life sentence in a federal prison in Colorado after mailing homemade explosives that killed three people and wounded 20.

According to the LA Times, the money was dispersed as follows:

  • Susan Mosser, widow of advertising executive Thomas Mosser, who was killed in 1994; $185,177.23.
  • Connie Murray, widow of Sacramento forester Gilbert Murray, who was killed in 1995; $33,648.05.
  • Gary Wright, who was injured by a 1987 bomb; $3,545.47.
  • Lois Epstein, the wife of University of California, San Francisco physician and researcher Charles Epstein, who was severely injured by a 1993 bomb; $3,364.81.
