Unabomber Investigated For Tylenol Plot

From a discreet Agence France-Presse:

FBI investigates Unabomber in Tylenol deaths

By Mira Oberman – Thu May 19, 2010

CHICAGO (AFP) – The FBI said Thursday it is investigating whether notorious Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski — who engaged in a 17-year mail-bomb spree — was also behind the 1982 Tylenol poisonings.

The Tylenol poisonings killed seven people and led to widespread panic after officials determined that someone had replaced the painkiller pills with cyanide capsules and returned them to store shelves in the Chicago area…

"As part of our re-examination of the evidence developed in connection with the 1982 Tylenol poisonings, we have attempted to secure DNA samples from numerous individuals, including Ted Kaczynski," the FBI said in a statement… He has so far declined to voluntarily provide a DNA sample in the Tylenol case, the FBI said

Mr. Kaczynski is in prison serving a life sentence for murdering three people. A sample can’t be taken from him even if he does not permit it?

Kaczynski, who was born in Chicago and railed against technology, denied involvement in a handwritten motion urging a California court to block an auction of his belongings.

"I have never even possessed any potassium cyanide," Kaczynski wrote in the 10-page letter dated May 5…

Kaczynski’s personal documents including driver’s licenses, birth certificates, bank checks, photos, typewriters, tools, clothing, watches and books are among 60 lots being sold in the auction, which runs until June 2.

In addition, more than 20,000 pages of written documents, including the original handwritten and typewritten versions of the "Unabomber Manifesto," will be up for grabs

Notice that this detailed listing of Mr. Kaczynski’s personal items leaves out his reportedly dog-eared, underlined, marked, and well-worn copy of Al Gore’s book, ‘Earth In The Balance.’

Nor do we hear about his other ‘manifesto’ that reads as follows:

"One of the effects of the intrusion of industrial society has been that over much of the world traditional controls on population have been thrown out of balance. Hence the population explosion, with all that it implies … No one knows what will happen as a result of ozone depletion, the greenhouse effect and other environmental problems that cannot yet be foreseen."

Why is that? It sure sounds like Mr. Kaczynski might have wanted to do his part to try to curtail the population.

    Unbelievably stupid. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of more important unsolved cases with greater significance than this. How many more man hours, and millions, will be spent? For what reason? TK isn’t going anywhere for the rest of his life.

  2. Liberals Demise says:

    We would be better suited going after the Unabanger (Clinton) for his bimbo eruptions.

    Evidentiary factoid 21,357,720 in the ongoing case of the self destruction of the greatest culture in human history.

    Manson and Kaczynski, Earth Children, doing Gaia’s bidding to purify the weak with death.

    I wonder if these cases will be cited in the upcoming Earth v. Humanity trial at the UN.

    Maybe – if only to tie them with Capitalism and Conservativesm.

    Thanks for the info, Steve, you’re great at tying up loose-ends of History into nice, neat bows.

    “He has so far declined to voluntarily provide a DNA sample in the Tylenol case, the FBI said…”

    I thought it was mandatory now that all felons have to give a DNA sample.

    • yadayada says:

      depends on jurisdictional statutes. i know Idaho code mandates dna samples for conviction of sex crimes or violent crimes. dunno bout feds

  6. Not so fast says:

    Isn’t it funny how these weird stories pop out everytime Barack Hussein Obama has stepped or is stepping in it.?The Unabomber could have been investigated at ANY time since the Clinton Administration.
