Names, Bomb Found In Kaczynski's Cabin

WASHINGTON -- Investigators found the names of some of the Unabomber's victims in documents seized during a search of the Montana cabin of suspect Theodore Kaczynski, the Washington Post reported Tuesday.


The newspaper quoted senior law enforcement sources as saying the names were contained in written material they declined to characterize, but not in lists.


The Post said the sources also would not disclose which names were found.


If correct, the discovery would add to the evidence gathered so far in the cabin, including a typewriter that may be linked to writings by the elusive Unabomber.


In addition, the New York Times reported in its Tuesday editions that a second bomb had been found in the cabin and it matched one used in one of the Unabomber's most recent killings in 1994 or 1995.


Officials announced the discovery of the a bomb-like device last week, but the Times, quoting federal law enforcement officials, said a second one was discovered over the weekend.


One unnamed official quoted by the Times noted the similarity with one used by the Unabomber and likened the discovery to finding two cars of the same make and model. "It was as if once he found the right design, he stuck with it," the Times quoted the official as saying.


Justice Department officials met with federal prosecutors from around the country to consider how to proceed.


Official are considering other charges, where to hold the trial and whether to seek the death penalty.


Theodore Kaczynski, 53, a Harvard-trained mathematician who dropped out for a lonesome life in a Montana cabin, is being held in jail in Helena, Montana, on a charge of possessing bomb-making components.


Attorney Anthony Bisceglie said his brother, David Kaczynski, contacted investigators because of his "very sincere desire to make sure that no further lives were lost if indeed his brother was involved." Bisceglie said David spent months examining incriminating letters and documents with a private investigator, with his lawyer and then the FBI.


"This is a close, loving family," the lawyer said. "I think David wanted very much to believe that Ted was not involved ... I think he is somewhat in shock. [But] I think he believes that his brother is involved."


The Kaczynski family sent their condolences to the Unabomber's victims. The lawyer said they will not speak to the media, but would like to be in touch with Theodore.


A $1 million reward has not been claimed. Bisceglie said the family is considering donating it to the bomber's victims and their survivors. Three people were killed and 23 injured by bombs.


Bisceglie said David's doubts arose after he read about the criminologists' profile of the Unabomber and found that the suspect was believed to be Chicago-born, to hate technology, to be highly educated and have links to Berkeley, California, and Utah. This described Theodore.


David read the Unabomber's long diatribe against modern technology published in consultation with the FBI by the New York Times and Washington Post and saw disturbing similarities to his brother's letters home.
