Items Found in Kaczynski Cabin Include Execs’ Names, Maps, Guns

April 15, 1996

HELENA, Mont. (AP) _ FBI agents searching Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski’s cabin found addresses of corporate executives, maps of San Francisco, bus schedules, guns and a bottle of anti-depressant medicine, according to an inventory released Monday.

In a filing released in federal court, the FBI also confirmed published reports of three typewriters found in the cabin, as well as several unspecified documents and notes.

However, none of the documents were identified as the original text of the Unabomber manifesto, the 35,000-word tract published in The Washington Post last year. A source told The Associated Press last week that agents found what appeared to be the original of the diatribe against modern technology.

Kaczynski, 53, was arrested at the cabin near Lincoln two weeks ago and is being held on charges of possessing bomb components. He has not been charged with any of the Unabomber attacks, which killed three people and injured 23.

In its list, the FBI did not specifically link any of the more than 600 items to the Unabomber or his crimes and did not even use the word ``Unabomber.″

One item simply read: ``One `Calumet Baking Powder’ can containing soldering wire.″ Another specified a pair of brown and green hikcing boots with a brand name, Northwest Territory. One entry said ``letters″; another read simply ``documents.″

Dozens of the entries were for chemicals. A pipe bomb was found, as was an ``improvised explosive device″ in a cardboard box, and five guns.

The list doesn’t identify the corporate executives or list the addresses.

A bottle of Trazadone, a prescription anti-depressant drug, was found.

The list also described a hooded jacket, a blue zippered sweatshirt and hood and two pairs of plastic glasses. A witness who saw the Unabomber plant one bomb described him as wearing a hooded sweatshirt and aviator glasses, resulting in the widely circulated composite sketch.

The references to San Francisco and to corporate executives were cryptic. The item was listed as: ``One `Aldrich’ box containing misc. papers, newspaper clippings, bus schedule, addresses of corporate officials and maps of San Francisco.″

However, the references may be significant because the Unabomber, who raged against modern technology, targeted executives.

Three of the bombings occurred in the San Francisco Bay area and two in Sacramento. Five of the bombs were mailed from Northern California, including two from Oakland and one from San Francisco.

The FBI list was ordered released by U.S. District Judge Charles Lovell, who authorized the original search.
