Theodore Kaczynski, a.k.a. the unabomber, eluded authorities for 20 years from his hermitage in Montana, sending bombs through the mail that killed three people and wounded 20. Then in 1995 there was media flurry, when the New York Times published his manifesto and his brother turned him in. For 15 years he has been doing time alone in a "supermax" prison in Colorado. But this week, the media flurry around Kaczynski has begun again. First on Wednesday, when the government started auctioning his stuff to raise money for his victim's families and then again yesterday, when the F.B.I. has requested a DNA sample from him in the 25 year old "Tylenol case." Did he do it? Sam Stanton, Reporter for the Sacramento Bee reports the new developments with the FBI.
