Timeline: How the package bomb investigation unfolded

Miami. Federal authorities took Sayoc 56 of Aventura Fla. into custody Friday Oct. 26 2018 in Florida in connection with the mail

It turned out that the 56-year-old man worked as a bouncer and a stripper at nightclubs, according to his cousin, who called his relative "the maniac who's been doing this [mailing pipe bombs]".

Others who received packages included former president Barack Obama, billionaire George Soros, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., actor Robert De Niro, Sen.

The suspect has been charged with five crimes, including illegal mailing of explosives.

The US Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security have intercepted at least 14 potentially unsafe explosive devices that were allegedly sent by Florida resident Cesar Sayoc Jr.

He also said there could be other packages.

In the meantime, Attorney General Jeff Sessions suggested that politics may have played a role and noted that Sayoc appeared to be a "partisan".

Three such devices were discovered on Friday - in Florida, New York and California - and officials warned there may be other, undiscovered packages in the mail system or a mailbox somewhere in the United States.

Investigators first went to the home of Sayoc's mother in Aventura, but were told he wasn't there, according to a law enforcement official.

"Lives w/mom. Has no furniture", reads a hand-written note in his bankruptcy report.

He did not graduate, the spokeswoman added.

The profile also described him as a veterinary student at High Point University in North Carolina.

Trump sends troops to Mexican border as response to migrant caravan
It was not immediately clear why active duty forces were chosen, since National Guard troops can perform the same functions. He said those trying to enter the U.S. "The president should not be using the military to further a partisan agenda".

What is his criminal record?

Facebook said it found accounts belonging to Sayoc on its main social network and its Instagram service and removed them. Yet somehow, for years Sayoc managed to slip through the cracks. He was arrested, aged 29, on a theft charge.

A law enforcement official told CNN the van was sent to Miramar, where an Federal Bureau of Investigation field office is located. Aside from attending Trump rallies, Cesar's time was spent being a road manager for Chippendales, International Gold Productions and Cesar Palace Royale Burlesque Show. It does not indicate whether his request was successful.

The mail bomb suspect was an avid bodybuilder, he trained in mixed martial arts and hoped to become a pro wrestler, but steroid abuse did nothing to make his dream come true.

He is a registered Republican, US media report. The van's exterior features images of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence as well as a "CNN Sucks" sticker, video footage shows.

Sayoc was apparently a fan of Donald Trump, or at least his clothing line, even before Trump announced his candidacy for president.

Two Twitter accounts that appear to belong to Sayoc under pseudonyms are largely made up of retweeted posts condemning Democratic politicians and public figures, including Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate for Florida governor.

Some had misspellings consistent with the mailed packages, such as "Hilary" instead of "Hillary", and "Shultz" instead of "Schultz".

JUST IN: We now have photo of the suspicious package addressed to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper found at mail facility on 52nd Street in Midtown, Manhattan. He said 50 officers swarmed the suspect's van with their firearms drawn. "I got no complaints from customers", she said.

"It was unsettling, and also it seemed to be occupied".
