A law enforcement official told NBC New York on Monday that a 15th suspected mail bomb, which was addressed to CNN, resembled other packages that were said to have been sent by 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc.
Given the serious nature of the charges against Sayoc and his extensive criminal history, he is expected to remain locked up pending trial.
Over the weekend, Moore revealed a connection between the two: Cesar Sayoc, the man arrested by authorities last Friday in connection to the mail bombs, was actually filmed by Moore and his team at a Trump rally while they were working on Fahrenheit 11/9. Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray said Sayoc was identified through a fingerprint found on one of the devices.
The van's windows were plastered with pro-Trump stickers, the slogan "CNN SUCKS" and images of Democratic leaders with red cross-hairs over their faces, echoing the rancor of one of the most toxic election campaigns in decades. Cory Booker another was sent to James Clapper, a former director of national intelligence; and a third was intercepted before it reached Sen.
Sayoc, who seemed to be living out of a van in Aventura, Florida, was taken into custody on a day when four more explosive packages were found, including two intended for United States senators, both Democrats. Then a fingerprint match turned up on a separate packages that authorities say he sent.
A NY federal defender who has also been listed as Sayoc's attorney didn't immediately return a request for comment.

Sayoc also posted virulently anti-Muslim memes and published the address of billionaire investor and Democratic donor George Soros, and photos of the homes of some others who later received bombs.
"Uhh, if they wanted me to", Trump said when asked if he would call Obama or any of the other targets to update them on the investigation.
Trump vowed that anyone responsible for mailing the suspicious packages will be prosecuted to the "fullest extent of the law".
The paper quoted Trump as saying, "We must never allow political violence to take root in America and I'm committed to doing everything in my power as president to stop it and stop it now".
At a rally on October 27, the president characterized the coverage of the mail bombings as the media's attempt to score "political points" against him and the Republican party ahead of the midterm elections. "The media's constant unfair coverage, deep hostility and negative attacks only serve to drive people apart and undermine healthy debate".
In a tweet earlier Friday, Trump referred to the investigation as "this "bomb" stuff", which he blamed for taking focus away from the upcoming midterm elections on November 6.
