Police finally found the bomber who murdered two people and injured several others with mailed bombs and a tripwire bomb. Officers surrounded the suspect, who is so far only now being identified as a 24 year old white male, while he was in his car. The suspect then detonated a bomb, blowing up the car and himself. Good on the police for finally catching this demon. As we read in a report from USA Today:

The man suspected of carrying out a string of bombings that killed two people and wounded several others in the Austin area is dead after detonating a bomb in a car as SWAT teams closed in. 

Authorities tracked down the suspect using a combination of cell phone triangulation technology, surveillance footage from a FedEx drop-off store, and combing through Google searches on the suspect’s computer history, KVUE-TV and the Austin American-Statesman report.

Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said in an early morning press conference that witness reports helped police identify the vehicle the 24-year-old was driving. Manley said surveillance teams then tracked the suspect’s vehicle to a hotel in Round Rock, Texas.

“We had multiple officers from both the police department and our federal partners that took up positions around the hotel awaiting the arrival of tactical teams,” Manley said. “We wanted to have ballistic vehicles here so we could attempt to take the suspect into custody.”

While waiting for the ballistic vehicles, the suspect, identified only as a 24-year-old white man, started to drive away from the hotel. Authorities followed the vehicle, which pulled off into a ditch.

“As members of the Austin police department SWAT team approached the vehicle, the suspect detonated a bomb inside the vehicle, knocking one of our SWAT officers back, and one of our SWAT officers fired at the suspect as well,” Manley said.

The suspect died in the vehicle, according to Manley.

Manley said the suspect’s name will be released when his identity is confirmed and his family has been informed. Manley said authorities still do not know the motive for the bombings.

CBS Austin has posted photos of the suspect from security footage, taken just hours before the terrorist blew himself up:

Now we await to find out what his ideology was.
