The Austin Bomber

Brianna Thompson, Staff Writer

In his recorded confession, Anthony Conditt labeled himself as a “psychopath” and showed no signs of remorse for those who were killed in the explosions. Police are still looking into the case and trying to find clues that may have led to these violent acts of terror. Investigators are looking to see if there was a possibility of a hate crime in these bombings even though there was no mention of racial motivation in the recording.

The first bomb went off on March 2nd, killing Anthony Stephan House. He was a 39-year-old father who worked as a project manager for Texas Quarries. The second bomb went off on March 12, killing Draylen Mason, he had brought the package inside his home as soon as he opened it the package had exploded. He was 17 years old. Esperanza Herrera, who is 75-years-old was critically injured by one of Conditt’s explosions. Two young men were injured after crossing a tripwire Conditt had rigged along a public trail in Austin, Texas. A worker at a distribution center in San Antonio was injured after one of two packages, both containing bombs went off. Both of those packages were shipped from FedEx.

Anthony Conditt died by detonating an explosive inside his vehicle after being pulled over by the police on March 21, 2018.
