Federal agents believe former air traffic controller and serial bomb suspect Robert Burke may be responsible for a seventh bombing that took place in Kansas just this past February.
According to an arrest affidavit a device uniquely similar to those found in Grand Junction exploded on the front porch of a couple's home in Derby, Kansas on Feb. 28. Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives officials believe Burke set–off the bomb just 28 days after bombing Cerco Headquarters in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
A month later he placed homemade bombs at five of his former co–workers homes in Grand Junction. According to court documents, the Serco employees and the Federal Aviation Administration employee who was targeted were all involved in a Serco Management services investigation that caused Burke's termination.
Burke was fired for allegedly making numerous threats to his co–workers for more than a year. Robert Burke is now in the custody of the U.S. Marshall's Office awaiting extradition from Utah to Colorado. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison for each explosive device.
