The former college professor known as the "Unabomber" has been transferred from a federal Supermax prison in Colorado where he severed the past two decades for a series of bombings to a federal prison medical facility in North Carolina.

The inmate, whose name is Theodore "Ted" Kaczynski, was moved on Dec. 14 to the U.S. Bureau of Prison's FMC Butner medical center in eastern North Carolina, the Associated Press reported Thursday. 

Bureau spokesperson Donald Murphy declined to disclose to the wire service details of Kaczynski's medical condition or the reason for his transfer.

Kaczynski, 79, is serving life without the possibility of parole for the bombs he made, delivered and mailed starting in 1978, killing three people and injuring 23 others. 

Kaczynski pleaded guilty to setting 16 explosions through 1995, the wire service also reports.
