Unabomber's Montana lot is for sale

LINCOLN, Mont., Dec. 5 (UPI) -- A Montana real estate agent says he has been getting calls about a secluded rural lot he is selling that once belonged to the notorious Unabomber.

Realtor John Pistelak told CNN that while the price of the 1.4-acre patch of land has dropped from $154,500 to under $70,000 there has been a level of interest since it went on the market.

"I've had all kinds of calls," Pistelak said. "It's very secluded. Hardly anyone goes up there."

The land in Lincoln used to be the site of the tiny shack where Ted Kaczynski holed up and put together a series of mail bombs that killed three people, injured 23 and had federal investigators baffled from 1978 to 1995.

Kaczynski, 68, is serving a life prison sentence and the cabin itself was carted off to a Washington museum. That leaves basically a patch of vacant wooded land that Pistelak says could be hooked up to electricity if the new owner so desires.

"With the history, it's got to be worth something," he said.
