Unabomber auction coming to an end

An online auction of the personal items of Unabomber Ted Kaczynski wraps up this week.  One of the hottest items in the auction is Kaczynski’s diploma from the University of Michigan.  

The auction is being run by the federal government with proceeds going to the victims of Ted Kaczynski’s nearly 20 year bombing spree.    Kaczynski’s mail bombs killed 3 and injured 23 others. Items in the online auction include the Unabomber’s hand written anti-technology manifesto and his trademark sunglasses and hoodie sweat jacket. 

Albert Najera is the U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of California.    He expects the bidding will pick up in the final hours of the online auction which closes Thursday.  

 “You know….One man’s…I don’t want to say junk… is another person’s treasure.”  

Ted Kaczynski turned his back on modern society a decade after receiving his PhD in Mathematics from the University of Michigan.
