Austin Police say 23-year old Mark Conditt recorded a 25-minute “confession” to his crimes. He’s the man accused of sending several bombs in the mail. Conditt blew himself up yesterday as police were closing in on him. Police Chief Brian Manley says the statement indicated no influence of terror or hate, instead describing it as an outcry of a man talking about challenges in his life.
Mark Anthony Conditt, the man linked to the deadly bombings that rocked Austin, Texas, and surrounding areas over the past month, recorded a 25-minute-long "confession" to his crimes, police said late Wednesday.
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. The recording was made on a phone, which was found in the suspect's possession following the confrontation.
Conditt described the bombs "with a level of specificity," including their differences, Manley said.
