Austin Bomber(Mark Anthony Conditt) Bombs Himself

He's dead Jim!

The 24-year-old man who terrified residents of Austin, Texas, with a three-week bombing campaign that killed two people blew himself up on the side of a highway north of the city as police closed in on him early Wednesday, police officials said.

Police had tracked the suspect to a hotel near Austin, the state’s capital city, and were following his vehicle when he pulled to the side of the road and detonated a device, killing himself, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told reporters near the scene.

“The suspect is deceased and has significant injuries from a blast that occurred from detonating a bomb inside his vehicle,” Manley told reporters. He said the suspect was white but declined to give his name.

Some problems end up solving themselves.

Lets dance!

Update: Dumbass has been identified as Mark Anthony Conditt.

Neighbors expressed shock that Conditt, who was homeschooled, was the bomber.

“I know this is a cliché but I just can’t imagine that,” one neighbor, whose children grew up playing with Conditt, told the Austin Statesman.

The local newspaper also reported that Conditt had received a degree from Austin Community College’s Northridge Campus. He had worked at Crux Semiconductor and as a computer repair technician.

Here is an old Blogspot blog he was running in 2012.

I've archived these in case Google throws them down the memory hole.


As you can see the first site on his blogroll is Andrew Sullivan, definitely not "conservative" but then you see Free Republic as well.

It appears this blog was written for a government class of some kind as he has a classmates blogroll as well. So he seems open to political arguments from the left and right. Possibly the first radical centrist ever?

I'm not sure, but there it is, read it yourself and draw your own conclusions.

Thanks to George.
