    Lord have mercy.

    At least 1 hurt in new reported package explosion in southwestern Austin

    At least one man was injured Tuesday night in yet another reported package explosion in Austin, Texas, investigators said -- just the latest in a string of blasts that have killed two people over the past month.

    Tuesday night's explosion unfolded on Brodie Lane in southwestern Austin, the county's EMS tweeted.

    The victim, in his 30s, suffered injuries that were "potentially serious, not expected to be life threatening," investigators said. Paramedics rushed the man to a hospital.

    Gather all camera footage from every intersection within 5 miles of the areas affected. Start the elimination process. No stone left unturned, and up the reward if need be. Gotta get this cat. Tri-pod camera's placed everywhere, and get the citizens to put up camera's in order to help out. Leave this cat with no where to hide.

    I have to imagine they have some leads, maybe even a visual of him. The problem is, the guy may have just delivered them all at one time and from a remote location. It just seems like an M.O that wouldn't be successful for long, but here is #6.

    Most criminals are caught because they are not that bright to begin with, and as they continue on their life of crime they get greedy or sloppy.

    Serial killers that are organized, as with this serial bomber, are usually of above average intelligence, and use counter-measures to make it harder to catch them.

    The one thing the cops have going for them is this guy has some compulsion that is not allowing him to stop or at least change locations.

    All the cops need is for him to screw up once, and then they have him.

    Shows he may have limited travel capabilities, so he is local possibly. Little Johnny done got to dam smart while living in mommy's basement watching to much I-net or playing those dammed video games.
