Kaczynski, who had been previously incarcerated in a maximum security facility in Colorado, was moved to a medical facility in North Carolina in December 2021 due to his worsening health.

The former mathematics professor had been known for his anti-technology and anti-establishment beliefs, which he expressed through his bombing campaign. The FBI had dubbed him as America's most prolific bomber, with 16 bombs that killed three people and injured two dozen others.

Despite being on the run for almost two decades, Kaczynski was eventually caught in a cabin in Montana, where authorities discovered evidence linking him to the bombings.

The FBI had tracked him down through a long and complex investigation that included forensic linguistics analysis, during which they compared the language and phrases used in the Unabomber's manifesto to that of Kaczynski's writings.

The trial eventually ended with Kaczynski pleading guilty and receiving a life sentence without the possibility of parole. However, despite his incarceration, his anti-establishment writings and beliefs continued to garner a following.
