Authorities Identify ‘Mail Bomb’ Suspect as 56-Year Old Cesar Sayoc, Jr.
Authorities arrested a suspect in south Florida in connection with a series of “suspicious packages” sent to prominent Democrats Friday morning, with multiple media outlets identifying the man as 56-year old Cesar Sayoc, Jr.
“A law enforcement source told Fox News that the suspect is a white male in his 50s, a former New Yorker, who lives in Aventura, Florida, who had prior arrests for terroristic threats. Several of the packages went through a U.S. postal facility in Opa-locka, which is less than 10 miles from Aventura,” writes Fox News.
“DNA evidence played a role in the arrest of Cesar Sayoc, Jr., 56,” confirmed NBC News.
“A law enforcement official identified the suspect as Cesar Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, Fla. The official said Mr. Sayoc had a criminal history and ties to the New York area,” adds the New York Times.
