Does James Fitzgerald Still Work For The FBI? The Unabomber Profiler Has An Active Career


Discovery’s limited series Manhunt: Unabomber retraces the 17-year bombing spree that hung over America from 1978 to 1995 — a case cracked in large part by FBI profiler James Fitzgerald (played by Sam Worthington in the show). He’s gone on to lead an extensive career investigating some of the last century’s most notorious crimes: JonBenét Ramsey’s 1996 murder, the 2001 anthrax investigation, the Beltway sniper attacks of 2002. But now two decades later, many viewers may wonder if James Fitzgerald still works for the FBI.

According to his website, he officially retired from the bureau in 2007, but has continued to explore forensic linguistics in various professional capacities.

Amidst the true crime sea that has recently flooded onto television screens everywhere, Discovery Channel’s eight-part limited series, Manhunt: Unabomber takes a new deep dive into an infamous case that spans decades and changed criminal profiling forever. As seen in the below exclusive clip from Tuesday’s Manhunt: Unabomber (airing at 10 p.m. ET on Discovery), FBI agent and brilliant criminal profiler James “Fitz” Fitzgerald, played by Sam Worthington uses Ted Kaczynski’s own writing to narrow down his true identity.

Paul Bettany as Ted Kaczynski and Mark Duplass as David Kaczynski

On this week’s Manhunt: Unabomber, we get the first look of Mark Duplass cast as David Kaczynski.

David ultimately was the reason the FBI was able to track down and capture his older brother Ted Kaczynski, aka the Unabomber.

After reading the Unabomber’s Manifesto in 1996, David acted on his wife Linda’s intuition and sent a sample of his brother Ted’s writing to the FBI for a comparative analysis.

Interestingly, David got a call stating that the letter he submitted was not a match and Ted was not a suspect. This was short-lived thank to the nature of FBI profiler, Jim “Fitz” Fitzgerald, and the ongoing investigation that has been stalled.

Fitz now lives in Pennsylvania and works at the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI. But he was still obsessed with the
