Convicted Olympic Park Bomber Publishes Book From Prison

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (February 23, 2013)--Convicted bomber Eric Rudolph has published his autobiography from prison, with his brother's help and it’s available online from a website that lets writers publish their own books for a price.

Daniel K. Rudolph is listed as publisher.

He's best known for cutting off his hand and videotaping it in what he called a message to the media and FBI while police searched for his brother.

Eric Rudolph pleaded guilty to setting off a bomb during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, and admitted to bombing a Birmingham abortion clinic in 1998.

Two people died in the blasts.

A prosecutor said authorities will look into seizing any money Rudolph makes from the book, which explains Rudolph’s motive in the bombings and recounts his capture after years on the run.
