The U.S. Federal government held a court-ordered online auction of “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski’s personal belongings to generate money to compensate his victims and their families.

Overall, bidders snapped up 58 lots of items and generated $232,246 in sales.

The highest selling lot was a collection of 20 personal journals Kaczynski kept describing his thoughts about himself, society and life in the wilds of Montana. These journals sold for $40,676, but were just a portion of the 20,000 pages of written documents featured in the sale.

Other sale items included his hoodie and sunglasses, which resemble those worn in a widely circulated sketch of the Unabomber suspect, and his typewriters, photographs and tools.

Kaczynski killed three people and wounded more than 20 victims with homemade bombs sent by post from 1978 to 1995.

He was dubbed the Unabomber when authorities had yet to identify and track him down. Currently, the 69-year-old is serving a life sentence at a federal prison in Colorado.
