Ted Kaczynski, the convict known as the Unabomber, was found dead in his prison cell Saturday morning, according to multiple reports. He turned 81.
Kaczynski was found dead in a North Carolina federal prison around 8 a.m., a Bureau of Prisons spokesman said. A cause of death was not immediately known.
He had been transferred to the North Carolina Federal Penitentiary Medical Facility in December 2021 after serving 20 years in a Colorado federal Supermax prison for a series of bombings against scientists.

Kaczynski was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole after his 1996 arrest at the primitive cabin where he lived in western Montana. He pleaded guilty to causing 16 explosions that killed three people and injured 23 others in various parts of the country between 1978 and 1995.
