The suspect in the recent New York City terror attack, Sayfullo Saipov, said he’s been plotting his horror for almost a year, according to prosecutors.
And he settled on the use of a rental truck as his tool of terror about two months ago.
Moreover, Saipov said he intentionally picked Halloween because he thought it would offer him the opportunity to kill and injure the most.
Saipov, 29, was charged in the deadliest attack on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001.
The Daily Caller News Foundation found more:
Investigators questioned those close to Saipov, and they said he had been heading down a dark path of destruction for “years.”
Saipov left behind letters at the crime scene written in Arabic, leading authorities to believe he is connected with the Islamic State and radical Islamic terrorism. He was heard shouting the terrorist chant “Allahu Akbar” after hitting a school bus and jumping out of his car, running into oncoming traffic.
He also requested an ISIS flag be hung in his hospital room to while he recovers from wounds. Investigators are still looking into if Saipov acted alone or had additional accomplices.
