Texas bomber Mark Conditt, who blew himself up after allegedly mailing out multiple incendiary devices, reportedly had a strong faith.
Police have accused Conditt, who died Wednesday, of manufacturing and mailing out bombs in the Austin area that killed and injured several.
Conditt’s family says they had no knowledge of his alleged attacks.
“We are devastated and broken at the news that our family could be involved in such an awful way,” the family said in a statement. “We had no idea of the darkness that Mark must have been in. Our family is a normal family in every way. We love, we pray, and we try to inspire and serve others. Right now our prayers are for those families that have lost loved ones, for those impacted in any way, and for the soul of our Mark. We are grieving and we are in shock. Please respect our privacy as we deal with this terrible, terrible knowledge and try to support each other through this time.”
