Mark Anthony Conditt was named Wednesday as the serial bomber behind the string of blasts that terrorized Texas for three weeks and left two people dead, as officials warned residents that other explosive devices may still be out there.
The first photo of Conditt, from 2013, emerged Wednesday morning and was authenticated by the Austin American-Statesman. The picture came from the Facebook page of his mom, Danene Conditt, who appeared to be celebrating Mark’s high school graduation.
“I officially graduated Mark from High School on Friday,” her post said. “1 down, 3 to go. He has 30 hrs of college credit too, but he’s thinking of taking some time to figure out what he wants to do….maybe a mission trip. Thanks to everyone for your support over the years.”
The 23-year-old, who federal prosecutors identified as the Austin bomber, can be seen in surveillance photos obtained by Fox News dropping off two suspicious packages on Sunday from inside a South Austin FedEx Office store on Brodie Lane.
