The Austin serial bomber that killed two over three weeks is dead after police closed in on him at a motel in the Round Rock area of the state. Police were able to pick up the bombers sent when he was caught on surveillance footage sending two packages at a Fed Ex drop-off location.
According to authorities, the unidentified 24-year-old suspect was traced by police using the video footage and by using cell phone triangulation technology, this according to the Austin American-Statesman.
The bomber appears to committed suicide when after a high speed chase with police, he detonated two explosives after running his car into a ditch.
Because Police fired on the vehicle, the exact cause of death has not been declared by authorities, even though the suspect was found dead with “significant injuries.”
President Trump tweeted about the overnight incident.
AUSTIN BOMBING SUSPECT IS DEAD. Great job by law enforcement and all concerned!
