Mentally ill homeless steroid addict and broke stripper Cesar Sayoc reportedly told the feds "he didn't do it" during pre-Miranda questioning, according to NBC News.
"Under pre-Miranda (public safety exemption) questioning Cesar Sayoc told federal investigators he didn't do it and would not say how many packages he sent," NBC News's Tom Winter said, citing reporting by WNBC investigative reporter Jonathan Dienst. "Post-Miranda he requested a lawyer and refused to talk."
This reporting is different from that of CNN, who said Friday that Sayoc "told investigators that the pipe bombs wouldn't have hurt anyone and that he didn't want to hurt anyone."
Zero out of the thirteen "IEDs" he sent detonated and many bomb experts said, in the words of the New York Times, that the device sent to CNN "had hallmarks" of a "fake explosive" of "the kind more typically depicted on television and in movies, rather than devices capable of detonating."
The alleged exact clock on the "IED" sent to CNN is an over-sized car clock without an alarm function, which is needed to trigger a detonator.
Nonetheless, FBI Director Christoper Wray said Friday that the devices, which he called "IEDs," each "consisted of roughly six inches of PVC pipe, a small clock, a battery, some wiring, and what is known as 'energetic material,' which is essentially potential explosives and material that gives off heat and energy through a reaction to heat, shock, or friction. Though we’re still analyzing the devices in our Laboratory, these are not hoax devices."
Jeff Sessions also said at the same press conference that Sayoc is facing "58 years" in prison, which was later corrected to 48 years.
The Conservative Treehouse on Friday night noted the oddities in such charges:
This is particularly curious given the very carefully worded statement from FBI Director Christopher Wray about the nature of the device(s): "energetic material that can become combustible when subjected to heat or friction." While Director Wray went to great lengths to state the devices were "not a hoax", if the device was an actual explosive device the charges for each of the incidents would equal a life-term.Sayoc, who was reportedly born to a Filipino father and Italian mother, was "a fitness-obsessed male stripper" and a "lost soul" who had a "problem with steroids," according to the New York Post, citing an unidentified cousin. Sayoc's former lawyer, Ronald S. Lowy, told CNN that he struggled for years with "a lack of comprehension of reality."
Sayoc's LinkedIn was loaded with largely incoherent gibberish:
He was reportedly living out of his van at the time of his arrest.
Sayoc openly littered social media with death threats:
He also had a massive rap sheet which included making terroristic threats:
Sayoc has been arrested several times in Broward County, Florida, dating back to 1991, court records show. His most recent arrest in Broward was in 2014. In 2002, he was charged with making a bomb threat in Dade County, Florida, when he threatened to blow up a power company if he turned off his electricity. According to the police report, Sayoc called Florida Power and Light and warned them that "it could be worse than September 11" if he lost his power. He threatened to blow up the company and also threatened the company's representative with physical harm.Follow InformationLiberation on Twitter, Facebook, Gab and Minds.
