BREAKING: Austin bomber left behind 25-minute manifesto (VIDEOS)


A 25-minute manifesto was left behind by Mark Anthony Conditt, the man who allegedly left the deadly package bombs that rocked Austin, Texas over the last three weeks. The tape is described as a “confession” to his crimes, police said late Wednesday.

From Fox News: Officers located the recording, in which Conditt, 23, described creating seven devices, including one he blew up to kill himself, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference.

Manley said: “Having listened to that recording, he does not at all mention anything about terrorism, nor does he mention anything about hate. But instead, it is the outcry of a very challenged young man talking about challenges in his personal life…”

Fox also reports: Police said all seven devices have been found, suggesting there was no further threat from Conditt to people in the area.

The bombs killed two people and injured four others in the Texas capital. Conditt blew himself up in a motel parking lot overnight as a SWAT team approached his SUV.

Conditt is described as an unemployed man who had attended community college. His motive is still a mystery, and investigators are still trying to determine if he acted alone in the bombings.

Conditt’s family said they were “devastated and broken” when they learned of his involvement. In a statement, the family offered “prayers for those families who have lost loved ones … and for the soul of our Mark.”

In the video’s below, law enforcement officials share updated information about Conditt and the bombings.
