FBI Director James Wray spoke Wednesday, reminding the public that “we are not out of the woods yet” and that any suspicious devices should still be reported. It is possible that suspect Cesar Sayoc, Jr. mailed other devices before being arrested.
Wray also said of the devices that were mailed “these are not hoax devices.” He further confirmed that a fingerprint on the envelope sent to Rep Maxine Waters (D-California), belonged to Sayot.
Sayot is being charged with five federal crimes including illegal mailing of explosives, threats against former presidents, and threatening interstate communications. He faces up to 58 years in prison if found guilty.
