Search of Kaczynski Cabin Yields Some Victims' Names: Investigators Find References in Handwritten Notes


Seper, Jerry, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)

The names are mentioned in handwritten notes found by agents at the scene, authorities said, but they are not specifically mentioned as targets. Federal agents declined yesterday to elaborate.

The suspect, who has lived a solitary life in the Montana mountains for more than 20 years, was arrested last week after federal agents found four unassembled pipe bombs in his primitive cabin, along with other materials believed to be bomb components.

Former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova described what has been found as a "treasure trove of corroborating evidence."
