FBI wants Unabomber's DNAFBI spokeswoman Cynthia Yates said the FBI has requested samples from “numerous individuals including Ted Kaczynski” and that Kaczynski
has so far refused to provide the samples voluntarily. Yates would not comment on whether federal authorities have already gotten the DNA sample from Kaczynski. But Kaczynski, in a motion filed May 9, said he would provide the sample voluntarily on the condition that they would stop an online auction of his items. Federal prosecutors responded that “there is no basis for an order interfering with the sale previously approved by the district court.” The auction went ahead as planned on Wednesday. A $100,000 award from Johnson & Johnson for the capture and conviction of the Tylenol killer has never been claimed.
