"I wish I were sorry but I am not", Conditt said on a video recording he left on his cell phone hours before blowing himself up in his auto Wednesday as authorities closed in, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

A federal criminal complaint and arrest warrant had been filed against Conditt last night.

The Austin bomber revealed he is not sorry on a confession recording police found on the 23-year-old's cell phone after his death.

"The suspect described the six bombs that constructed with a level of specificity that he identified the differences among those six bombs", the chief stated.

NAACP Austin President Nelson Linder said the manhunt's end was a relief but that the public needs answers on what motivated Conditt, including whether the first two victims were targeted because they are from prominent black families.

But Withers said her son didn't know anything about the bombs police say he made. "We have accounted for those devices".

Investigators detained two of Conditt's roommates who lived at the home, the Austin Police Department said.

Early miscalculations stoked frustration in the neighbourhoods where the second and third bombings went off on March 12.

Police found him early Wednesday at a hotel. But he said a psychological profile probably won't be known until investigators go through Conditt's writings and social media postings.

After almost three weeks of panic and mayhem, police cornered the man they described as the serial bomber Tuesday night.

Residents living nearby told KVUE neighbors had been hearing loud noises at night over the past few weeks.

The explosion knocked one officer back, while another fired at the suspect, but it was the bomb that took the life of the 24-year-old.

They initially thought it was a transformer explosion or someone at a local bar down the road.

"It's a very good family", Mark Roessler a neighbor of Conditt's parents told the Washington Post. "And then come to find out, the guy lives right there".

The governor said they carried out their duty in a way that achieved maximum response.

"She said it was like the equivalent of someone standing in the backyard with a shotgun going off, was how loud that was", Valentine described.

Beginning March 2, Conditt planted bombs in different parts of Austin, killing two people and severely wounding four others, police said.

Courtney, who said Conditt had visited his Lakewood, Colorado, home over Christmas, told The Associated Press he doesn't "know that anybody saw this coming". But they appeared to be learning little about Conditt's motives.

Investigators also believe that Conditt planned on doing more damage in the area.

According to Anita Ward, it was addressed to her daughter.

Cops finally got wind of Conditt when he walked into a FedEx store in Austin - wearing a blond wig and pink gloves - to drop off two explosive packages. Whitely added that police wanted to surprise the man.

As multiple officers from the local police and Federal Bureau of Investigation took position outside the hotel, waiting for tactical teams to arrive, the suspect got into his vehicle drove away.

Metayer applauds police from all over, working together on the case.

Chief Operating Officer David Bronczek said in a note to employees that FedEx was able to give the information to law enforcement "because of our advanced security capabilities and the vigilance of our team members".
