Writing in 2013, Danene said: ‘I officially graduated Mark from High School on Friday. ‘1 down, 3 to go. He has 30 hrs of college credit too, but he’s thinking of taking some time to figure out what he wants to do….maybe a mission trip.

‘Thanks to everyone for your support over the years.’ Another photo appears to show Mark on a snowboarding holiday over the 2013 Christmas Holidays.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott told “Fox & Friends” that the Conditt was unemployed and did not have a criminal record and had not served in the military.

“We don’t know if there are any other bombs out there and, if so, how many or where they may be,” said Abbott, who warned people not to pick up suspicious packages.

“We need to go throughout the day and make sure we rule out whether anybody else was involved in this process,” Abbot added.
