Unabomber in a federal medical prison by hanging himself inside his cell, according to a 911 call from the detention center.
An official called in the suicide early Saturday morning at FMC Butner, in North Carolina, noting medics were working on “a guy that was hanging,” TMZ reports.
The caller provided few details in the brief recording, only noting that there was a “crash cart” at hand in response to the hanging. A crash cart refers to a wheeled drawer that carries medical equipment for use in emergencies.
Kaczynski’s body allegedly suffered neck injuries, including a deformed trachea as a result of the hanging, sources told the outlet.
Officials said the infamous convict — who carried out a 17-year bombing spree that killed three and injured 23 others — was found unresponsive inside his cell around 12:30 a.m, but have yet to name the exact cause of death other than suicide.
Kaczynski, 81, had been moved to the medical prison in December 2021 due to his poor health after being diagnosed with late-stage cancer.
