Fbi Agents Found Executives’ Addresses In Cabin

FBI agents searching Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski’s cabin found addresses of corporate executives, maps of San Francisco, bus schedules, guns and a bottle of anti-depressant medicine, according to an inventory released Monday.

In a filing released in federal court, the FBI also confirmed published reports of three typewriters found in the cabin, as well as several unspecified documents and notes.

However, none of the documents were identified as the original text of the Unabomber manifesto, the 35,000-word tract published in The Washington Post last year. A source told The Associated Press last week that agents found what appeared to be the original of the diatribe against modern technology.

Kaczynski, 53, was arrested at the cabin near Lincoln two weeks ago and is being held on charges of possessing bomb components. He has not been charged with any of the Unabomber attacks, which killed three people and injured 23. In its list, the FBI did not specifically link any of the more than 600 items to the Unabomber or his crimes.

One item simply read: “One ‘Calumet Baking Powder’ can containing soldering wire.” Another specified a pair of brown and green hiking boots with a brand name, Northwest Territory. One entry said “letters”; another read simply “documents.”

Dozens of the entries were for chemicals. A pipe bomb was found, as was an “improvised explosive device” in a cardboard box, and five guns. Among the weapons were a .25-caliber gun, bolt-action .22-caliber rifle, Remington model .30-06, .22 caliber black-handle revolver and a hand-made gun.

A bottle of Trazodone, a prescription anti-depressant drug, was found.
