What is the world coming to?
Now named the "serial bomber", there is someone sending homemade bombs all throughout Texas. Authorities are being really tight lipped about the investigation so here's what we know:
- Packages are detonated when they are picked up
- Escalated from packages being left at door steps to trip-wires being left in residential area to an explosive device being shipped through a delivery company
- Total of $65k reward for information leading to the suspect
There was thought to have been a sixth attempt however it was confirmed this incident was not related to the other five.
#UPDATE: There was no package explosion in the 9800 block of Brodie Ln. Items inside package was not a bomb, rather an incendiary device. At this time, we have no reason to believe this incident is related to previous package bombs. #Breaking #packagebombmurders— Austin Police Dept (@Austin_Police) March 21, 2018
