For weeks, the people of Austin, Texas have lived their lives in fear.
Seemingly random bombings took the lives of two people and injured many more.
Now, Austin Police have not only reported that the bombing suspect is dead, but he left behind some closure for the people of Austin–a confession tape.
Austin Police Chief Brian Manley reported earlier this week that his force came across a 25-minute recording on a phone where the suspected bomber, Mark Conditt, explained how he made and identified the bombs.
Details of the confession were released during a press conference held to signify the end of the trauma.
The Daily Caller reported:
Austin-area residents breathed a collective sigh of relief Wednesday morning, when authorities announced the suspect in a bombing spree killed himself following a police chase.
The suspect, identified as 23-year-old Mark Anthony Conditt, allegedly killed two people and injured three others in a series of bombings across the Austin area. Local residents were gripped by fear for nearly three weeks, not knowing where and when the next bomb would explode or who would be targeted.
Federal agents and local police have began searching Conditt’s home on Wednesday for clues as to why a seemingly peaceful, shy young man would methodically plan to murder complete strangers.
“We have, at this point, located a recording that the suspect in this incident made. It is about a 25 minute recording where he talks about what he has done. I would classify this as a confession,” Manley said.

Conditt did not talk about terrorism but instead laid out challenges that may have caused him to attack people in the Austin, Tx., area, Manley added.
The bombing suspect died earlier this week after self-detonating a bomb while being pursued by police officials.
Police are almost certain he was responsible for six bombings that occurred in Austin, Texas over the course of the last few weeks.
More information on what else was on the 25-minute long confession tape should be revealed soon.
For now, it seems the people of Austin can feel safe once more, as the trauma is over.
