After killing two and injuring six, the man identified as the serial bomber has killed himself after being found by police.

Austin Police Chief Brian Manley says the bomber has been identified as 23-year-old Mark Anthony Conditt.

Police are now searching for any other packages the serial bomber may have left behind before he took his own life as police closed in.

There have been six bombs since the first explosion nearly three weeks ago, leaving two dead and six injured.

The bombs were shipped through the mail, or rigged to explode with tripwires.
