Austin police reported that “serial bomber” Mark Conditt left a video “confession” on the cell phone found in his car after he killed himself by detonating his seventh bomb Wednesday morning. Conditt details the seven bombs he built, including the one that ended his own life. The message did not include any statements about terrorism or hate, police said.

Austin Interim Police Chief Brian Manley told reporters in a press conference Wednesday evening, “We have, at this point, located a recording that the suspect in this incident made. It is about a 25-minute recording where he talks about what he has done. I would classify this as a confession.”

Chief Manley said investigators found the recording on a cell phone Conditt had in his possession in his car when he killed himself Wednesday morning.

“The suspect described the six bombs that constructed with a level of specificity that he identified the differences among those six bombs,” the chief stated. Manley explained there were similarities between the six bombs and differences. “On his recording, he identified what those differences were.”

Chief - Investigators - Motive - Conditt - Bombing

The chief explained that investigators are still attempting to determine the motive behind Conditt’s bombing campaign. “What I can tell you, having listened to that recording — he does not at all mention anything about terrorism. Nor does he mention anything about hate.”

“But instead,” Manley continued, “It is the outcry of a very challenged young man talking about challenges in his personal life that led him to this point.”

Conditt - Detail - Devices - Manley

The chief continued and explained that Conditt described in detail the six devices he constructed. All six of those have been accounted for, Manley explained.

“He also described a seventh device,” he said. “That being the one he had on him this morning that he detonated as our officers approached.”
