Cesar Sayoc, pipe bomb suspect in US, claims Filipino ancestry

Cesar Altieri Sayoc, the Florida man accused of sending pipe bombs to at least 13 potential explosive devices to prominent Democratic and media figures across the USA in recent days — including Obama, Clinton, Soros, former attorney general Eric H. Holder Jr. and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.)—claims Filipino ancestry.

On his LinkedIn profile, he says his grandfather was a prominent surgeon in the Philippines.

In an interview with Washington Post, his cousin said Sayoc’s father is Filipino and his mother is Italian.

On Friday, October 26, authorities arrested Sayoc for sending explosive devices to critics of US President Donald Trump.

The white van he used to throw pipe bombs is covered with images of Trump and Mike Pence. It also had faces of Hillary Clinton, film-maker Michael Moore and CNN’s Van Jones, with target symbols over their faces.

Ronald Lowy, an attorney representing Sayoc’s family members, said he believed Sayoc was mentally ill.

He will face 48 years in prison if convicted with the charges.

According to public records that the media got hold of, the accused was first arrested in 1991 for “grand theft in the third degree”.

Then in 2012, he was sentenced for threatening to “throw, place, project or discharge any destructive device” when he had threatened to throw a bomb in a conversation with a Florida utility representative.

In May 2014, Sayoc pleaded no contest to felony charges of grand theft and battery in Broward county, according to court filings.
