Mark Anthony Conditt, 23, is suspected to have killed two people with bombs in Austin and didn't show guilt for his actions, said McCaul, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.

“He did refer to himself as a psychopath. He did not show any remorse, in fact questioning himself for why he didn’t feel any remorse for what he did,” McCaul said, revealing additional details of a recording made by the suspect that police discovered last week and are treating as a confession.


Although the first three victims of the bombings were minorities, Conditt reportedly does not cite any racial motivation for his killings in the recording.

Investigators also discovered that Conditt had a list of targets for future attacks.

"We went to the homes and cleared them of any suspicious packages,” McCaul told Fox News last week.

Interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley has said that police will not make the recording public as investigators continue to search for a motive and any other people that might have been involved.

The Austin bombings that began in early March left two people dead and multiple wounded.

The suspected bomber left packages with explosives on doorsteps overnight. He also rigged a tripwire to explode on a public trail and sent two packages with bombs via FedEx, one of which exploded at a distribution center in San Antonio.
