The 23-year old suspect behind the deadly string of bombings that terrorized central Texas for weeks left behind a 25-minute confession tape; detailing his plans and bomb techniques before ultimately killing himself as law enforcement closed in.
Mark Anthony Conditt recorded the audio message on his phone; confessing to creating seven devices that killed two people and injured five more over the course of four weeks.
“Officers located the recording, in which Conditt, 23, described creating seven devices, including one he blew up during the conflict with police, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference,” writes Fox News. “The recording was made on a phone, which was found in the suspect’s possession following the confrontation.”
According to local law enforcement, Conditt never mentioned “anything about terrorism” nor did he discuss his motives behind the deadly bombings.
Despite having accounted for all seven devices, the FBI is urging Austin residents to “remain vigilant” should they encounter unexpected deliveries or suspicious packages.
