By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — An investigator on an elite task force that captured the man known as the Unabomber will be the keynote speaker at the Wichita Crime Commission's annual awards banquet.

Retired FBI agent Candace Delong was a psychiatric nurse prior to joining the agency and its behavior sciences unit. In 1995 she was one of three agents picked to hunt for the "Unabomber." Ted Kacszynki sent 16 bombs over a 17-year period, killing six people.

The commission's annual awards banquet honors law enforcement, criminal justice officials and citizens whose work made the community safer. The event will be held Oct. 23 in Wichita.
