Suspected Texas serial bomber dies after 'blowing himself up inside car'

"It is the outcry of a very challenged young man talking about challenges in his own life", Manley said of the recording, which authorities declined to release amid the ongoing investigation.

U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, a Republican from Austin who is chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said that investigators have obtained surveillance videos that "could possibly" show a suspect but are still poring through video. Apart from the confession, the police are mute about other issues the Austin bomber may have said in the recording. The officers moved toward the vehicle on foot.

He says it ended up in a ditch near the side of the road and that as a SWAT team closed in, the suspect detonated a bomb inside the vehicle.

Police Chief Brian Manley said early Wednesday that the suspect set off an explosive device in his vehicle as SWAT team members were closing in.

Conditt, who had never before been in trouble with the law, killed two people and wounded five with a campaign of violence that began on March 2, authorities said.

In the recording, the bomber allegedly describes the six bombs in very specific detail, according to the report. He attended from 2010 to 2012 and had no record of any disciplinary actions, the school said.

Did Conditt make the bombs himself?

Manley said the tape was apparently recorded on Tuesday night and that "there was no reason" for specifically choosing to harm anyone who received them.

Mr Schulze described the home over which the drones were flying as "a weird house with a lot of people coming and going" and a bit rundown. "Right now our prayers are for those families who have lost loved ones, for those impacted in any way, and for the soul of our Mark". Conditt had visited his parents regularly, he said.

Authorities did not release the names of the roommates, explaining that they had not been placed under arrest. His uncle, Mike Courtney, said his nephew was a "computer geek" who was intelligent and kind.

An agent the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives works with his dog near the site of Sunday's explosion, Monday, March 19, 2018, in Austin, Texas.

The first attack on March 2 started with an ordinary sight - a package left on a doorstep in north Austin. Two days later, a fifth explosion rocked a FedEx sorting facility, in which one person was injured.

The package was intercepted, unexploded, at a FedEx sorting center.

Police previously said they had considered the possibility that the attacks were racially motivated, noting that the first several victims, including the two who died, were either African-American or Hispanic.

His motives for the bombings remain unknown. The package was found by law enforcement on Tuesday and did not explode. But authorities urged continued awareness just in case. Special agent Fred Milanowski told Reuters, "I wouldn't call it a bomb-making factory, but there's definitely components consistent with what we've seen in all these other devices". Conditt's roommates are now undergoing questioning. One was later released. However, no functional explosives were found, and all of the materials were confined to one room.

Police described Conditt's testimonial in interviews. A 39-year old man was killed. On being surrounded by police vehicles, he detonated a bomb, killing himself.

AUSTIN, Texas - Investigators pursuing a suspected serial bomber in the Texas capital shifted their attention Tuesday to a FedEx shipping center near San Antonio where a package exploded on a conveyor belt in the middle of the night and caused minor injuries to a worker.

Later in the day, police sent a bomb squad to a FedEx facility outside the Austin airport to check on a suspicious package.

Authorities said there are some answers they still don't have. The explosive packages sent by the culprit would take the lives of two people and injure five more before a suspect could be tracked down. He reportedly killed himself Wednesday in an explosion inside his auto.
