The leader of the UNABOMBER task force and people close to Kaczynski help shed light on the most famous criminal investigation of the century.The search lasted 17 years. The subject of the hunt, which became one of the most expensive criminal investigations in American history, eluded capture while waging a random campaign of terror that stymied the authorities and captured the attention of the world. But ultimately, he was undone by his brother, who recognized the twisted ramblings of the astonishing "Manifesto" which was printed in The New York Times and Washington Post. National Geographic recounts how a gifted mathematician lived a hermit's existence in rural Montana and waged war against innocent Americans. Ted Kaczynski fastidiously prepared bombs and sent them to the mailboxes of academics, airline officials and advertising executives seemingly at random. HUNT FOR THE UNABOMBER presents interviews with those closest to the case and Kaczynski, including FBI profilers, the law enforcement officers who arrested Kaczynski, the leader of the UNABOMBER Task Force, friends of Kaczynski and the prosecutor in the case.It's the story of an American anti-hero who will be remembered as one of the most puzzling figures of the century.
