A former mathematician, Ted Kaczynski moved to the relatively remote town of Lincoln, Montana, in 1971.

Known as a recluse by members of the community, Ted Kaczynski lived a self-sufficient lifestyle in a tiny cabin without electricity or running water.

FBI Investigation Of Ted Kaczynski

The investigation into Ted Kaczynski became the most prolonged and most extensive case the FBI had ever had up until that point.

He was finally arrested in 1996 for murdering three individuals between 1978 and 1995 and injuring 23 others through a nationwide mail bombing campaign.

The bombs were sent to people that Ted Kaczynski believed were advancing modern technology and causing the destruction of the environment.
