Los Angeles Times: FBI Looking for Pipe-Bomb Suspect [url]http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/wire/ats-ap_us10may07.story?coll=sns%2Dap%2Dtopus[/url] FBI Looking for Pipe-Bomb Suspect May 7 2002, 9:30 AM PDT LUBBOCK, Texas -- The FBI has issued an all-points bulletin asking West Texas law officers to search for a 22-year-old pipe-bombing suspect, a Lubbock Police Department spokesman said Tuesday. A pipe bomb similar to 17 others found in four other states was discovered in a rural mailbox in Amarillo with a letter attached, the FBI said. The FBI in Omaha, where the investigation is centered, immediately refused to confirm that the man is a suspect in the case. Agent Larry Holmquist would only say that investigators were aware that an all-points bulletin had been issued for him. Copyright 2002 Associated Press

This is a hell of time to be doing these types of things to your country asshole. Hope you and John Hinkley make good friends in that cell.

What I want to know is how they found the initial messages with the bombs that went off... didn't they get blown up?

A pipe bomb similar to 17 others found in four other states was discovered in a rural mailbox in Amarillo with a letter attached, the FBI said. Bill Morgan, a spokesman with the Lubbock Police Department, confirmed that the suspect named in a Department of Public Safety radio transmission is Luke John Helder, 22, who reportedly is driving a gray, 1992, four-door Honda Accord with Minnesota license plate number EZL 783. Helder is described as armed and dangerous. He is white, 5 foot 9 inches, 150 pounds with brown hair and green eyes. FBI agent Larry Holmquist in Omaha, Neb., said the bomb found in Amarillo, about 110 miles north of Lubbock, "looks similar to the others." "Upon our initial inspection, it appears it would be from the same source," he said. The latest bomb was accompanied by a letter, the FBI said. Most of the earlier bombs were accompanied by anti-government notes that warned "More 'attention getters' are on the way." The bomb was found late Monday or early Tuesday, Holmquist said. There have been no arrests and no injuries reported since six people were hurt Friday. Authorities said anti-government notes found with most of the earlier devices were nearly identical and profiling experts have said whoever wrote them is probably an older American man. Investigators had not yet inspected the letter attached to the Amarillo bomb, Holmquist said. "We haven't made any comparisons yet, but everything else, including the bomb itself, looks similar in nature," he said. The FBI had said Monday that the first 15 bombs clearly came from the same source. The 16th bomb, found Monday in Nebraska, was "pretty much the same" as the first 15, said Mike Matuzek, Postal Service district manager for Nebraska and southwest Iowa. And FBI agent Mark Mershon said the 17th bomb, found Monday in south-central Colorado, was consistent with the others. The discovery of the bomb in a Colorado mailbox already had made authorities fearful that the wave of terrorism had spread out of the Midwest. "The logical concern here, given that this device is consistent with the others, is: 'Is the tip of the iceberg?"' Mershon said after the 17th bomb was found in a plastic bag in a curbside mailbox outside Salida, Colo. Postal carriers in the area were told not to deliver materials to any closed mailbox. The scare began Friday when six people were injured by mailbox explosives in Illinois and Iowa, creating new fears about domestic terrorism striking the heartland. -- continued --

By the end of the weekend, eight bombs had been found in Illinois and Iowa, and then eight more were discovered in rural areas of Nebraska. The bombs in Iowa and Illinois were found in rural locations that form a large, uneven ring about 70 miles in diameter. The Nebraska bomb sites form a large ring about 90 miles across. Those two areas are separated by about 350 miles but connected by Interstate 80. Salida, about 100 miles southwest of Denver, is more than 400 miles west of the Nebraska bomb sites. Amarillo is about 325 miles southeast of Salida. At Salida, all mailbox doors were open along the quiet residential street, 12 miles from the center of town, where the bomb was found. A man who answered the door at the house said he didn't want to comment. "It seems unreal in a small town like Salida, in a residential neighborhood. It's just unbelievable," said Ida Hansen, a resident of the town of some 4,700 people for 20 years. A suspected explosive device found Monday in a field about 80 miles east of Salida turned out not to be related to the case, said Rich Marianos, a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. As nervous letter carriers went back to work across the Midwest on Monday, rural residents in Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska were asked to leave their mailboxes open or remove their mailbox doors as a precaution. Jim Pelzer wore safety goggles and earplugs as he delivered mail at Tipton, Iowa, where one of the bombs exploded Friday. "My feeling was when we had 9-11 and the anthrax scare, I was a little concerned about my job safety," Pelzer said. "But now I'm intimidated and scared." Officials described the bombs as three-quarter-inch steel pipes attached to 9-volt batteries, and said they appeared to be triggered by being touched or moved.

You do not have to be a FBI profiler to see certain alarming facts about this mail box bombing mope. It looks like this guy has cut all his ties and set out across the country on a suicide mission. His references to death not being real, and the goverment promoting the death myth (Secularism in Goverment?) point to a religious mania. This guy believes in his own immortality. Getting into a gunbattle with authorities will only serve to prove his holy immmortality. THIS GUY WILL SHOOT IT OUT AT THE DROP OF A HAT. He will not negotiate, beliving any negotiator to be part of the secularist conspiracy to trick the world into a death cult, He may briefly attempt to use negotiators as a tool to spread his conspiracy message, but in the end will elect to go out shooting, prefering suicide by cop, to taking his own life agaist his own belief in his immortality and his religious bent against personal suicide. He is probably armed with a pistol and a long weapon (Please god don't let it be an AR15.) He will immediatly take offensive action agaist any law enforcement officers that aproach him or civilians he belives to be helping law enforcement to find him. Once he finds out that the goverment has I.D.ed him, he may very well elect to attempt a massacre/suicide attack against a Post Office, Goverment, Law Enforcement building or a School. No joke guys, this guy is dangerous as hell!

Lubbock police spokesman Bill Morgan said the bulletin identified the man as Luke John Helder, who was seen driving a gray Honda Accord with Minnesota license plates. The bulletin said Helder was armed and dangerous, according to Morgan. Morgan's statement came shortly after a pipe bomb was discovered in a rural mailbox in Amarillo - 110 miles north of Lubbock - with a letter attached. The device was similar to 17 pipe bombs found in four other states, FBI agent Larry Holmquist said in Omaha, Neb. In Salida, Colo., FBI agent Daniel T. Leyman said authorities nationwide have the description and name of a man who is a possible suspect. Leyman also identified the man as Luke Helder. ``We cannot rule out that he is connected with some kind of organization,'' Leyman said. The FBI received a tip that Helder may be able to shed some light on the pipe bombs, said Barry Babler, an FBI special agent in Milwaukee. The FBI called the school this morning about Helder, and agents have questioned his roommates, said John K. Enger, the school's executive director of university relations. Federal agents arrived Monday night in Menomonie, about 65 miles east of the Twin Cities, Babler said. Helder is a junior majoring in art with an industrial design concentration, Enger said. The campus directory lists his hometown as Pine Island, Minn. UW-Stout enrolls more than 8,000 students. In Omaha, where the investigation is centered, the FBI refused to confirm that Helder is a suspect in the case. Holmquist would only say that investigators were aware that an all-points bulletin had been issued for a man. At a news conference in Amarillo, FBI agent Miles Burden said the agency was pursuing the case aggressively. He declined to answer questions about Helder, referring reporters to an afternoon FBI news conference in Washington. The bomb found in Texas was accompanied by a letter, the FBI said. Holmquist said it was found within the Amarillo city limits by a homeowner at around 4:30 p.m. Monday. The homeowner found the bomb in a plastic bag and ``moved it into their residence'' before calling authorities, he said.
