The FBI searched an underground tunnel system near Ted Kaczynski’s mountain shack shortly after the Unabomber suspect’s arrest last month, a newspaper reported today.
The Independent Record reported that a volunteer with the fire department in nearby Lincoln helped federal agents explore the tunnel complex two days after Kaczynski was taken into custody.
Agents rented two self-contained breathing apparatuses, or “air packs,” from the Lincoln Volunteer Fire Department, and recruited the firefighter, who at one point had trouble fitting through a tunnel with the pack on, the newspaper reported, quoting a fire department volunteer it did not identify.
The newspaper didn’t describe the extent of the tunnel complex or say where it is located in relation to the 10-by-14-foot cabin. It also didn’t say whether anything was recovered from the tunnels.
