HEADLINE: FBI reveals evidence from cabin




HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The search of Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski's cabin yielded the names and addresses of corporate executives, street maps of the San Francisco area, bus schedules and several guns and explosive devices, an FBI document confirms.

In a filing released in U.S. District Court yesterday, the agency also confirmed published reports of three typewriters found in the cabin, as well as several unspecified writings.

But the 34-page list does not specifically identify any of those documents as the original text of the Unabomber manifesto.

Dozens of the entries on the list were for chemicals. A pipe bomb was found, along with at least four guns.

The list also described a hooded jacket, a blue zippered sweatshirt and hood and two pairs of plastic glasses. A witness who saw the Unabomber plant one bomb described him as wearing a hooded sweatshirt and aviator glasses, resulting in the widely published artist's sketch.

Kaczynski, 53, was arrested at the cabin near Lincoln, Mont., two weeks ago and is being held on a single count of possessing bomb components. He has not been charged with any of the Unabomber attacks.

The bombings, over the past 18 years, killed three people and injured 23 in nine states. Three of the bombings occurred in the San Francisco Bay area.
