Bomber episode 3 - Fear - released last Friday

PRESS RELEASE — April 1, 2019

BOMBER, hosted by Jason Puckett, TEGNA journalist and national Verify correspondent, tells the untold story of how law enforcement hunted down the 2018 Austin serial bomber and brought 19 days of terror to a sudden, cataclysmic end. Over the course of 19 days in March 2018, 23-year old Mark Anthony Conditt planted a series of homemade bombs around Austin neighborhoods, killing two, injuring five others, and paralyzing an entire city. As SWAT officers finally closed in on the fleeing suspect, he blew himself up inside his car.

On Friday, March 29, VAULT Studios releases BOMBER’s third episode “Fear.” Austin residents are living in fear as police continue to hunt for a killer. The 9-1-1 system in Austin is overloaded with calls, but the killer goes quiet. Thus, the manhunt continues.

With first-hand accounts from residents, witnesses, victims’ families, Austin’s Police Chief Brian Manley, KVUE and Austin American Statesman Reporter Tony Plohetski, KVUE Reporters Erica Proffer and Jay Wallis, BOMBER brings listeners the incredible story of how investigators used a FedEx security camera, cell phones, and round-the-clock work to catch-up with Conditt. The podcast will also seek to answer many of the questions that are still unresolved one year later, including what drove Conditt’s murderous spree to how he chose his victims and why the Austin Police Department says the case is still open despite the FBI closing its investigation.

BOMBER is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Play, TEGNA’s owned-and-operated digital platforms, and every major listening platform. A new episode will be released every Friday until April 19. Listeners can also engage in the social media conversation by using #BomberPodcast and visiting for more information.
