CHICAGO, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Illinois police say a man killed in a pipe-bomb explosion in an Evanston park committed suicide and had no intention of harming anyone else.
Police said information on the 21-year-old's computer revealed he had been researching bomb-making methods, and evidence regarding the place and time he selected to detonate the bomb showed he meant only to kill himself, the Chicago-Sun Times reported Thursday.
Police said a suicide note was also found.
On Sept. 14, Colin P. Dalebroux was killed after one of two pipe bombs he was carrying exploded in Fitzsimmons Park in Evanston.
A local resident notified police of a body at that location a little less than an hour later.
Evanston police notified the Cook County Bomb Squad, established a safety perimeter and notified residents.
The bomb squad rendered the second explosive device inoperable.
Evanston police detectives, with FBI assistance, conducted the forensic analysis of Dalebroux's personal computer.
