Judge: Unabomber Items to Be Sold Online

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 5:45 pm

A federal judge has ordered personal items seized in 1996 from Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski’s Montana cabin to be sold online.

U.S. District Judge Garland Burrell Jr. ruled Thursday that items belonging to Kaczynski - including books, tools, clothing and two checkbooks - should be sold at a “reasonably advertised Internet auction.”

The auction will not include 100 items the government considers to be bomb-making materials, such as writings that contain diagrams and “recipes” for bombs.

The remaining revenues from the sale will be applied to the $15 million in restitution that Burrell ordered Kaczynski to pay his victims.
