The gripping conclusion to the capture and trial of Ted Kaczynski airs tonight on the last episode of Discovery’s Manhunt: Unabomber.
In our exclusive clip below we see exactly how FBI Agent and Criminal Profiler Jim “Fitz” Fitzgerald got Kaczynski to plead guilty.
It was the realization that the wood cabin where Kaczynski lived as a hermit in Montana — now stored as evidence in an Air Force warehouse — was going to be used by his own legal team to prove he was insane.
Kaczynski eventually plead guilty to the 16 bombings from 1978 to 1995, which killed three people and injured 23 others. He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in 1998.
Yet it was not an easy road for law enforcement.
