A woman, who was his supposed neighbor in Shelton, Connecticut, said that Faisal Shahzad used to stay next door and never talked much besides the fact that he claimed to work in Wall Street. Shahzad had a family living with him, and the neighbor used to play with his daughter, but she had never been in much of a contact with him.
Sources say that Shahzad’s wife spoke English and she was very insecure about her language ability so she, never spoke much. But when asked, she said they were moving to Missouri. Shahzad had made international calls recent to the incident, and he said that he was alone in the act.
