HEADLINE: 'Unabomber' sent letter: FBI
DATELINE: SAN FRANCISCO
A letter received by a Nobel Prize-winning geneticist was sent by the Unabomber on the same day as a package bomb that killed another man, the FBI confirmed yesterday. The bomber sent four letters from Oakland on April 20 when he mailed the most recent bomb. One of the letters went to Richard J. Roberts at New England Biolabs in Beverly, Mass., near Boston. The Unabomber has killed three people and injured 23 in 16 bombings around the country since 1978. Last month, his bomb killed timber industry lobbyist Gilbert Murray in Sacramento.
