Authorities: suspected bomber kept angry blog

STAFFORD, VA (WWBT) -

Authorities have discovered a blog they say belonged to the suspected Stafford County bomber.

Laurence Stewart, 25, was arrested in Montana after a nationwide manhunt. Stafford County Sheriff Charles Jett says Stewart was taken down after a high-speed chase. Authorities say Stewart launched pipe bombs from his car at the pursuing officers. Those bombs exploded. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

Authorities say Stewart's blog reveals his rage against his ex-girlfriend and several Stafford County Sheriff's Officers. The blog also details what may have triggered the path of violence.

The blog's title is "A corrupt system. I will not be a victim." It's author, according to investigators, is Laurence Stewart II.

Stewart is now charged with at least three counts of attempted murder, two on sheriff's officers. The blog recounts a tumultuous relationship with an ex-girlfriend and her mother, reading "I rank their dark sadist tendencies equal to that of a child rapist."

Investigators say, in the blog, that Stewart explains his side of indecent exposure and domestic violence charges, even showing pictures of his alleged injuries after a physical fight with his ex.

One post blasts several Stafford officers involved in the case, "The moment those idiot pigs deiced to arrest me, they marked me as guilty."

Then, a final thought: "If I am to be blamed for wrongdoing, I should at least have some fun and do whatever I want without regard."

Investigators say Stewart's attacks were premeditated.

"Detectives and agents uncovered the fact that he had been planning this for weeks," said Sheriff Jett.

Jett says that Stewart was also stockpiling containers of gasoline. Authorities say they found a number of stored gallons in his car.

Three home bombings, and a volatile high-speed chase later, Stewart is now being held in Montana.

"Whatever will take this person from society for the rest of his life, is what this team here is committed to, as well as the prosecutors," said Sheriff Jett.

Stewart will be extradited back to Virginia after he's formally charged in Montana.
