Olympics bomber Eric Robert Rudolph writing autobiography


Eric Robert Rudolph, the man who grew up in Western North Carolina and was convicted of bombing the 1996 Olympics, is writing his autobiography.

WSBTV reports on Rudolph:

Convicted 1996 Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph is working on an autobiography and a law enforcement agency that helped hunt him down is now forced to help him.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said its forensic artist, Marla Lawson, drew two sketches of Rudolph to catch him when he was on the loose after the Olympic Park bombing along with three others.

The GBI champions open-records, so it has no choice but to honor a pair of requests on behalf of Rudolph, even if it means one of the sketches may now help him.

Rudolph is serving his time in the Supermax federal prison in Colorado. He has said that the Olympic bombing, as well as another, were done to protest abortion. He is not allowed to profit from the sale of his book.

Asheville Citizen-Times reporter and columnist John Boyle weighs in on Rudolph here.
