Episode 67: Mr Arreola, Wearing A Thong And Making A Bomb - The Unabomber : Part 3
In this episode The Crypt Keepers Stef & Devin continue discussing The Unabomber. They discuss how he began to make his bombs look more friendly. With handles, binders, manuscripts & even just pieces of wood. He wanted the element of surprise & worked hard to make his bombs look approachable enough for someone to pick them up. His first fatality happened on December 11th 1985, impaling the poor man who thought he was just moving a piece of wood out of the back parking lot of his store. Ted wrote about it in his journal, proudly stating the man was “blown to bits”. Ted also spent time arguing with his family through written letters, they urged him to seek help believing he was suffering from a mental illness. Finally, two witnesses see Ted place a bomb & were able to give information to draw a composite sketch, but the witnesses believed that Ted was around 28 years old when he was much older - leaving the sketch to do more bad than good. Also, Ted forms his longest friendship with an unlikely person - a scam artist.
