ALABAMA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The man who held a boy captive for days in an underground bunker was most likely planning a fiery end.
The FBI says Jimmy Lee Dykes rigged the underground bunker with explosives.
They found one device out in the open and a second bomb had been placed in the tube Dykes was using to communicate with the FBI.
SWAT agents stormed the bunker Monday to rescue the 5-year old boy.
The FBI says Dykes engaged in a "firefight" before he was killed.
