(Newser) – Unabomber Ted Kaczynski has a lost a legal battle to prevent his personal effects from being auctioned off. US marshals will stage an online auction May 18 through June 2 of items collected from his Montana cabin, including tools, driver's licenses, typewriters, and 20,000 pages of written documents—including the original handwritten version of his infamous manifesto, reports CNN.

The catalog will be available at the General Services Administration website on May 18. Proceeds will benefit the victims of Kaczysnki, now 68, who killed three people and wounded 23 in a series of bombings from 1978 to 1995. Caught in 1996, he is now serving a life sentence.
