JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

A bankruptcy petition filed in 2012 by Cesar Sayoc, the suspect arrested in the mail bomb case, painted a picture of man with few possessions or assets living with his mother.

A handwritten note on the petition read: “*Lives w/ mom. Has no furniture.”

Sayoc was 50 years old at the time he filed for bankruptcy in Miami federal bankruptcy court. The law firm of the attorney representing Sayoc declined to comment when reached by TPM Friday.

The petition said Sayoc had just $4,175 in assets, all in personal property, and $21,109 in liabilities.

Among his personal assets he listed a 2001 Chevy Tahoe with 285,000 miles on it valued at $2,975, $50 in clothing and a $1,150 tax refund

He was employed as a store manager by a company called Hassanco Investments Inc., in Hollywood, Florida, where he made $922.74 a month after payroll taxes, according to the bankruptcy filing.
