The suspect in Saturday’s Dallas mall shooting that left eight dead and multiple people injured left an odd voicemail on his cell phone in which he ranted or joked about money and paying his phone bill. 

Fox News Digital obtained records 33-year-old Mauricio Martinez Garcia, who authorities later identified in the mass shooting. A phone number listed in the records goes straight to voicemail. 

“Hi, this is Mauricio. If you’re the phone company, I already sent the money. If you’re my parents, please send money,” the message begins. 

He continues: “If you’re my financial aid institution, you didn’t lend me enough money. If you are my friend, you owe me money.” 


To the ladies, the suspect – who recently still lived with his parents – assures them: “don’t worry, I have plenty of money.”
