Looks like police had confronted a suspect in the bombings, and he blew himself up. The suspect was a 24 year-old white male.

As far as I've seen so far the bomber had not put out any ideologically motivated messaging attached the bombings.

Further details on the bomber are coming out. Mark Anthony Conditt was a 23 or 24 year old white male, home schooled and living in a house his father helped him build. No information on motive as of yet.

Doesn't mean I have any interest in playing the same game of stumping a political side in a case like this. Particularly not when so few details are known as of yet.

And details about how the police tracked down the suspect are starting to come out.

24 year old home schooled white male in Texas doesn't exactly scream Muslim extremist.

According to his mother he was actually considering becoming a Christian missionary.

Doesn't look like his cell phone confession, family, or friends give much insight into his motives either.

https://www.npr.org/2018/03/21/595706345/he-s-not-a-psychopath-says-friend-of-austin-bombings-suspect

A friend of the suspect, Jeremiah Jensen, describes Conditt as shy, smart and thoughtful. Jensen attended church with Conditt and says he was "pretty good friends" with him in 2012 and 2013. Jensen says Conditt never exhibited tendencies that made him think he'd be "capable of something like this."


https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/21/us/austin-explosions/index.html

One of Conditt's aunts released a prepared statement Wednesday, saying his relatives were "devastated and broken at the news that our family could be involved in such an awful way."

"We had no idea of the darkness that Mark must have been in," the statement reads. "Our family is a normal family in every way. We love, we pray, and we try to inspire and serve others.

"Right now our prayers are for those families that have lost loved ones, for those impacted in any way, and for the soul of our Mark. We are grieving and we are in shock. Please respect our privacy as we deal with this terrible, terrible knowledge and try to support each other through this time."


As the Austin bomber sensed that authorities were closing in on him on Tuesday night, he took out his cell phone and recorded a 25-minute video confessing to building the explosive devices -- but didn't explain why he targeted his victims, interim Austin police Chief Brian Manley said.

"It is the outcry of a very challenged young man talking about challenges in his life that led him to this point," the interim chief said. "I know everybody is interested in a motive and understanding why. And we're never going to be able to put a (rationale) behind these acts," Manley told reporters Wednesday night.


http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/03/21/austin-bomber-recorded-25-minute-confession-to-his-deadly-crimes-police-say.html

In the recording, the suspect did not mention "anything about terrorism, nor does he mention anything about hate," the police chief said. The message is rather "the outcry of a very challenged young man talking about challenges in his personal life."

I am curious about what "challenges" are referenced in his confession and if he indeed was struggling with something how it went supposedly went unnoticed by virtually everyone around him.

We seem to be drifting towards the "Guy that takes it out on everyone else instead of just killing himself" territory of attacker. But serial attacks, especially bombs ( and a vow to continue bombing if not stopped in his confession ) doesn't quite fit that either. As those types usually go through with some emotional breakdown/rage kind of episode and perform only one attack then off themselves.

Hopefully they'll find more as they dig into his social media, computers, etc. We don't need another question mark like the Las Vegas shooter.
