John Newton, 49, an agent for 18 years, said he did nothing wrong as he guarded the cabin near Lincoln, Mont. He said he found the eight-foot horns in the trash and returned them as soon as he knew someone was looking for them. Newton was among agents sent to Montana to protect the cabin from being looted or vandalized. The Herald, citing records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, said he planned to hang the horns in his hunting camp in New Hampshire.

The Herald said it was Kaczynski who noticed the antlers were missing, notifying his lawyers. 2" A'V'tA V(' I I WW Tflff Associated Press Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski looks out at the tarmac toward a sheriff's deputy upon arriving in Pueblo, on Tuesday.

Solitary confinement inmates cannot go to the library or the dining room or attend religious services. A courtroom inside the prison ensures inmates never have to leave the grounds. FLORENCE, Colo. (AP) Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski joined some of America's most dangerous criminals Tuesday at Supermax, the so-called Alcatraz of the Rockies.

Twelve-foot fences topped with razor wire and a cell with a concrete bed and a chair greeted Kaczynski, who began serving four life sentences plus 30 years for a bombing Spree that left three dead and 29 injured. The 55-year-old former mathematician was sentenced in Sacramento, on Monday under a plea bargain that spared him a possible death sentence. Kaczynski joins Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh; Ramzi Yousef, mastermind of the World Trade Center bombing; and Charles Harrelson, the hitman father of "Cheers" star Woody Harrelson. The $60 million high-security federal prison opened in 1995 in this town 3,500 people about 100 miles southwest of Denver. Kaczynski, like all newcomers and prisoners deemed dangerous.

Lawson put the royalties more than $1,200 into an account to eventually be claimed by the Unabomber. The money is still there. "I've been waiting for some sort of word," Lawson said Monday. Lawson said he would gladly turn the money over to the government if ordered to do so.

He is also willing to consider for publication "Manifesto II," which Kaczynski is reportedly writing. hangar at a former Air Force Base, is owned by the Kaczynski family, prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed Monday. The weather-beaten cabin is currently under the control of U.S. District Judge Garland Burrell, who oversaw Kaczynski's trial. Among the possibilities: The cabin could be reduced to kindling by the family, it could be auctioned and the money given to victims' families; it could be burned.

Kaczynski has one other asset, and the publisher holding it for him isn't sure what to do next. Kristan Lawson of Jolly Roger SACRAMENTO. Calif. (AP) The tiny cabin where Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski plotted an 18-year bombing spree sits in a warehouse, its fate uncertain. The 10-by-12-foot shack, Kaczynski's home in the Montana wilderness, was taken by truck months ago to Sacramento, where defense lawyers had planned to use it as evidence of Kaczynski's mental illness.

But the trial ended in a plea bargain in January, and Kaczynski was sentenced Monday to four consecutive life sentences plus 30 years.
