Suspected bomber Cesar Sayoc's family "can't believe" the Florida man has been arrested in connection with bombs sent to political figures and celebrities around the country this week, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
In an exclusive interview with Radar, Sayoc's nephew Casey Graves, 24, claimed he had "no idea" about his 56-year-old uncle's suspected connection to the crimes, which include sending explosives to President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Robert De Niro in the mail.
"This is a lot to swallow right now," Graves told Radar. "I just can't believe this."
Graves said he and his family have been "distant" from the man, who has been taken into custody in Florida.
"It's been quite a while since we've seen him," he added. "Wow."
According to reports, DNA helped lead authorities to Sayoc.
