((David Kaczynski has been seen only once in public since his brother was
arrested last Wednesday. He and his mother rushed away from reporters wanting
to know why he turned his brother in, and what made him suspicious.
Today in Washington, a family attorney said it all began last summer when
david heard media reports of the cities the unabomber was known to inhabit.
TONY BISCEGLIE/FAMILY ATTORNEY: HE HAD A NAGGING FEELING TED HAD A CONNECTION
TO THE BOMBINGS.
The attorney says David Kaczynski's suspicions became stronger when he read
the Unabomber's manifesto published in the New York Times and Washington Post.
BISCEGLIE: DAVID KACZYNSKI READ THE MANIFESTO WITH THE IDEA HE WOULD BE ABLE TO
IMMEDIATELY DISCOUNT ANY CONNECTION BETWEEN HIS BROTHER AND THE UNABOMBER.
UNFORTUNATELY FOR MR. DAVID KACZYNSKI WHEN HE READ THE MANIFESTO HE WAS UNABLE
TO DO THAT AND IN FACT WAS LEFT WITH CONSIDERABLE UNEASE.
That unease led to his contact with attorney Tony Bisceglie who, through a
private investigator, had the unabomber's manifesto analyzed and compared with
Ted Kaczynski's letters to his family.
An expert said there was a strong possibility they were written by the same
person. Following a number of anonymous contacts with the FBI through attorney
Biscegli, David Kaczynski finally agreed to provide his brother's name, a
decision he did not make lightly.
BISCEGLIE: I THINK THERE WAS A GREAT DEAL OF ANGUISH AND GRIEF. THE FAMILY IS
GOING THROUGH A GRIEVING PROCESS.

CONVENED NEXT WEEK TO ASSESS WHETHER THERE IS ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO KEEP TED
KACZYNSKI LOCKED UP ON A SINGLE CHARGE OF POSSESSION OF BOMB-MAKING EQUIPMENT.
