The alleged package bomber in Austin, Texas — Mark Anthony Conditt — detonated a final bomb earlier this week as authorities narrowed their search down to him. Conditt’s initial attack was carried out when he left a bomb outside a residence, but at least one involved a drop-off he made at a FedEx office.
