Mark Anthony Conditt, 24, was identified as the Austin bombing suspect who killed two and wounded five others after leaving mail bombs are mostly black and Latino neighborhoods in Austin, Texas.
Conditt blew himself up in his car as officers closed in on him outside a hotel in Round Rock last night.
Conditt went on a three-week bombing spree starting on March 2 and ending on March 20, when his most recent package detonated at a FedEx sorting facility near San Antonio. He killed 17-year-old Draylen Mason and 39-year-old Anthony Stephan House, in separate attacks.
Police believe Conditt, who previously worked as a computer repair technician, made all the bombs himself. Neighbors say he had been living at a home in the Austin suburb of Pflugerville, which he purchased last year.
