Unabomber Ted Kaczynski murdered three people and injured 23 more with his mail bombs. The Unabomber sent his first mailbomb in 1978 and escaped justice for nearly 20 years before his family tipped off the FBI in 1996.

The court has ordered the Unabomber to pay $15 million in restitution to his victims, starting with the auction of materials seized from his Montana cabin.

An online auction of "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski's personal items was set to begin Wednesday, with proceeds to compensate some of his victims.

The online auction will run through June 2, the U.S. Marshals Service said last week. Among about 60 items up for sale are personal documents such as driver's licenses, birth certificates and checks; academic transcripts; typewriters; and "more than 20,000 pages of written documents, including the original handwritten and typewritten versions" of Kaczynski's manifesto, authorities said.

The auction will be conducted by the General Services Administration, the Marshals Service said. A catalog of the items will be available on the GSA's auction website when the sale begins.

From the GSA Auction Website:
Sale of Theodore John Kaczynski aka “The Unabomber” items – Per a Court Order in the criminal case United States V. Theodore J. Kaczynski (96-cr-259-GEB, E D. Cal.; 06-10514, 9th Circuit), the government has been ordered to conduct a “well-publicized” internet sale of Kaczynski’s seized property to be sold to the general public in the effort to pay off a $15 million restitution order to the victims and their families. Unlike other sales, neither the U.S. Marshals Service nor GSA will receive any revenue from this sale. Please click here for more details about the auctions.

    if the funds go to the victims, I am all for it. I personally don't have the cash to burn on junk like this but I'm sure someone will. It's about time the actions of criminals start being punished fairly and some kind of monetary compensation is given the the victims. We need to do more, more to protect the innocent and punish the criminals more harsh

    I saw that and personally would not participate. There are better, more tasteful ways to do it. Perhaps stupidity wan not the correct choice of words.

    Wait, I reread the article on CNN and I changed my mind. I would bid on the items because the money is going to help the victims of the maniac.

    If I won an item I would unceremoniously destroy it...
