James R. Fitzgerald, a former FBI criminal profiler and forensic linguist, talks about his role in the identification, arrest and prosecution of Theodore Kaczynski, the serial bomber known as the Unabomber. For 17 years, Kaczynski targeted universities, airlines computer stores, and others, killing three people and injuring 23.
Fitzgerald also talks about his new book “A Journey to the Center of the Mind Book III” which chronicles his early days with the FBI and his involvement in the arrest of serial killers, bank robbers, kidnappers and extortionists, and his investigation and identification of the Unabomber.
The Newseum and Discovery Communications are partnering on Discovery’s upcoming scripted anthology series, “Manhunt: UNABOMBER,” which premieres with a special two-hour episode on Discovery Channel on Tuesday, August 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Fitzgerald’s pivotal role in arresting the Unabomber will be highlighted in the series.
