Unabomber Auction

Friday, May 13, 2011 - 9:04am

Personal items of "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski set to hit the auction block.

An upcoming online auction of items seized from the Montana cabin of Unabomber Ted Kaczynski is upsetting to a close friend of a Sacramento, California bombing victim.

Dave Bishel, president of the California Forestry Association, said he'd prefer Kaczynski's personal items leave in a dump truck and that everything about him just be forgotten.

Bishel was a close friend of Gil Murray, who was killed in a 1995 bombing in Sacramento at the Forestry Association office.

He said that despite the fact the auction proceeds will compensate some of the victims, "It just doesn't sit right."

The auction begins May 18 and features 60 items such as personal documents, checks, birth
certificate, tools, sunglasses, a typewriter and many versions of his environmental manifesto.

The auction will be conducted by the General Services Administration on behalf of the U.S. Marshals Service.

Kaczynski is serving a live term in a federal prison in Colorado for a string of bombings between 1978 and 1995 that killed three people and wounded 23 others.
