He was responsible for mailing and delivering sophisticated bombs between 1978 and 1996 and is responsible for killing three people and injuring almost two dozen people in that period. He was only caught when his brother identified his manifesto as something similar to what he writes.
In 1997, he pleaded guilty to the terrorism charges brought against him – and confirmed that he believed his attacks were appropriate because of society’s increasing reliance on technology.
While he will never leave prison, he did escape a death sentence.
