This photo, released by the U.S. Marshals Service, displays one of the lots being sold in an online auction of the personal effects of Ted Kaczynski, aka the “Unabomber.” The U.S. Marshals auction will run from May 18 through June 2. Proceeds from the auction will be used to compensate Kaczynski’s victims. For more information, see the U.S. Marshals news release at www.usmarshals.gov/news/chron/2011/051211.htm.

A main investigative theory of the UNABOM Task Force was that the UNABOM subject was a white male who spent his life until early adulthood in Illinois, followed by moves to Utah and California. This turned out to be exactly the pattern Kaczynski followed. This copy of his birth certificate partially adhered to the original evidence bag helps confirm this theory.
