^Bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc, lost and angry, found his tribe with Trump<
^PACKAGES-THREATS-SAYOC:MI—<Cesar Sayoc lived on the crummy strip-mall fringes of South Florida, sleeping in a van that stank of sweaty gym clothes, delivering pizzas on the graveyard shift and working as floorman in a smoky, dingy club where naked dancers gyrated mechanically for dollar tips from boozy customers.
Sayoc was always several rungs lower on the ladder than he aspired to be and he exaggerated the caliber of roles he chose for himself.
Sayoc finally found his true calling two years ago at a rally for Donald Trump in West Palm Beach.
At some point, authorities say, he began plotting a venture that would at last make up for the failures on his resume. Sayoc allegedly worked on it into the wee hours inside his van.
