Industry hopeful Unabomber hunters have their man: Wood & Wood Products May 1996. (From the Archives).
The reclusive Kaczynski was arrested after the FBI received a tip from his brother. In addition to a list of 70 names that included forestry association representatives, evidence found in Kaczynski's Montana cabin reportedly included bomb-making materials and an early draft of the Unabomber Manifesto published in the New York Times and Washington Post last September.
During the investigation, FBI agents pointed to the Unabomber's apparent fascination with wood and forests. Some of the bombs, including the one used in the April 24,1995, killing of Gilbert Murray, president of the California Forestry Assn., were encased in a wood box. Twigs were found in some of the bombs. One of those killed in an earlier attack was Percy Wood who lived in Lake Forest, IL. Another victim, Thomas Moser, was an advertising executive with Young & Rubicam, a firm that had worked with the State of Michigan to promote wood resources.
