The investigation of the case that has gripped the attention, and fuelled the burning anger of all law-abiding and upstanding Americans over the last few days - the mail bombs - is back to square one this morning, after it was discovered that Cesar Sayoc was merely 'correcting a postal mistake', and forwarding misdirected mail that had mysteriously arrived at his home, to the proper recipients.
Sayoc, 56, told officers that "around 15" packages were left on the porch outside his home in Aventura, Florida, last Thursday, probably, he assumed, by a lazy postal worker. He threw them into the back of his white van, and drove to the nearest post office, where he left them. That was the last he had thought of the matter, until yesterday when he was arrested. Sayoc told officers at Keystone police station:
"I woulda returned 'em 'to sender', but there was no address. I thought I was helping out."
