When Special Agent Bomb Tech Bill Forsyth is called to an unattended backpack during a live concert at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, he finds himself face to face with a 40-pound pipe bomb, which explodes after he quickly moves the crowd away from the scene. After several more bombings in the Atlanta area – and in Birmingham, Ala. – the FBI ultimately realizes the suspect is a deranged political extremist serial bomber and hardened survivalist. When the suspect flees into the Appalachian Mountains, one of the biggest manhunts in U.S. history ensues as the agents feel the pressure to find the bomber before other people die. Forsyth (FBI Special Agent Bomb Tech), Ron Tunkel (a retired Special Agent, criminal profiler with the ATF), Chris Swecker (a 24-year FBI veteran who retired as assistant director with responsibility over all FBI criminal investigations), and Frank Brostrom (a Special Agent Bomb Technician) sit down with FBI veteran Special Agent Kristy Kottis, on a never-before-seen episode of FBI TRUE.
