After a shooting in Jeffersontown, Kentucky American citizens were getting nervous about the increasing amount of suspicious packages being sent through the mail. The first package was sent to billionaire George Soros, who is also a liberal campaign donor on Monday afternoon 22 October 2018. A few days later on Wednesday, 24 October secret services said they have found two more packages, one which was sent to Hillary Clinton former Secretary of State and another sent to the former President, Barack Obama. By Wednesday, four more packages had been found.
On Friday, 26 October, a 56-year-old man named Cesar Sayoc had been arrested. He has apparently sent 14 packages containing real pipe bombs, however, none of them were detonated. Sayoc is in police custody in order to obtain further information.
