The home of the husband-and-wife who killed 14 in San Bernardino has been thrown open to the media revealing scores of family trinkets and toys that would have sat among boxes of ammunition and pipe bombs as they planned their attack, which the FBI says it is now investigating as ‘an act of terror.’ More photos after cuts…
Tashfeen Malik and Syed Rizwan Farook’s home is also filled with family photographs, Korans and other books on Islam but appears to have the appearance of a normal suburban family residence.
The couple’s landlord invited members of the media to tour their rental home in Redlands, California, this morning – just as it has emerged that Malik had posted a pledge of allegiance to ISIS and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, just minutes into a deadly attack on a holiday party Wednesday.
Among the photos found in the two-story town house are a series of young women, although it is not known if any of them are Malik, and a California State University identity card belonging to Farook. Journalists were let into the home after FBI investigators had collected all the evidence they needed and turned the apartment back over to its owner. Federal agents have been combing through cellphones and a computer hard drive left behind by the couple in their Redlands, California, rental home to try to establish a motive for the killings.
The couple were armed with a .223-caliber DPMS Model A15 rifle, a Smith and Wesson M&P15 rifle as well as Llama handgun and a Smith and Wesson handgun
