Theodore “Ted” Kaczynski, also known as the “Unabomber,” has been found dead in his prison cell, according to reports.
The American domestic terrorist died in prison on Saturday morning at the age of 81, the Federal Bureau of Prisons has revealed.
Kaczynski was held in a maximum security prison in Colorado.
In December 2021, however, he was transferred due to poor health to a medical facility in North Carolina, ABC News reported.
Between 1978 and 1995, he launched a nationwide mail bombing campaign.
He sent explosive devices to universities and offices of air carriers.
Kaczynski sought to attract attention to what he believed was the erosion of human freedom by modern technologies.
Sixteen bombs sent by Kaczynski killed three people and injured over 20.
He was arrested in 1996 and sentenced to life in prison.
