When police caught up with the suspect, they found him carrying zip ties and other chilling paraphernalia.
Investigators found the zip ties along with rope, tape, gloves, and two hammers. Officials say 42-year-old Paul DePape had planned to interrogate Pelosi about an undisclosed matter. If he felt she replied honestly, he’d release her. If not, he planned to take the hammer to both her kneecaps.
