Did He Have Help? How the Nice Terrorist Prepared for Bastille Day Attack
It is believed Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel may have had help planning the deadly truck attack.
Police say that the 31-year-old Nice terrorist, Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, may not have worked alone as previously thought.
He sent two text messages just before the Bastille Day attack, with one saying: "Bring more weapons, bring five of them to C." It is currently unclear what “C” meant in the message.
The other read: "It's good, I have the equipment.”
Bouhlel reportedly asked for "the heaviest truck" when he rented the 19-ton refrigerated vehicle and practiced for two days, driving up and down the Promenade des Anglais trying to figure out how to cause the most damage.
According to video surveillance footage, Lahouaiej-Bouhlel was seen studying the area prior to Bastille Day.
Over the weekend, police arrested a man and woman believed to have been linked to the terrorist driver.
More information about the divorced father of three has come also to surface. He was a gym fanatic who drank alcohol and used drugs. He had numerous photos of both male and female sexual partners saved on his phone.
On Saturday, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack that left 84 dead and more than 200 injured. The terrorist organization called Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, who was killed after the massacre, a "soldier."
