((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.
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.
WHEN DAVID KACYNSKI READ THE MANIFESTO... 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 Biscgelie, 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...GRIEVING PROCESS.
Meanwhile, the search of Ted Kaczynski's Lincoln, Montana shack will continue a while longer.
Detailed lab analyses of typewriters and other evidence found there will take days more to complete.
The FBI has reportedly placed Kaczynski in Sacramento on dates coinciding with the mailing of bombs that killed two victims in 1985 and 1995.
And here in Helena, Montana, a federal grand jury will be 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. Byron Harlan, CBS News, Helena.))

Each year about 500-thousand Americans suffer a stroke-- it's the third leading cause of death in this country, behind heart disease and cancer.
But a nationwide study-- in which the University of Virginia participated-- has found a promising treatment for people who've had acute ischemic strokes-- they're caused by a blood clot that reduces blood flow to the brain.
The key is not only the clot-dissolving drug T-P-A-- but also, fast reaction.

It's crucial that patients get to a hospital as quickly as possible--
Those at a high risk for stroke include people with untreated hypertension or uncontrolled diabetes.
Those who have a history of heart disease or atrial fibrillation-- or those experiencing the warning signs of stroke.
Those signs include abrupt changes in speech, or weakness or numbness in the face, arm or leg on one side of the body.
The patient may also be suddenly unable to walk, they may lose vision in one eye, or experience a sudden, very severe headache.
Haley says patients must get the drug within three hours of their initial symptom-- in order to reap the benefits.
