Trending: Whistleblower Investigating Broward County Fraud Shot Himself Dead, But No Gun Found

TMJ4 has the scoop:

A Wisconsin man is accused of trying to buy a lethal dose of a radioactive substance on the Internet to try and kill someone.

Justin Tolomeo, Special Agent in Charge of the Milwaukee Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a news release Jeremy Ryan, 30, of the Town of Madison has been charged with attempted possession of radioactive material with intent to cause death.

Ryan allegedly attempted to buy the lethal dose in March and October of 2018. He was arrested on Tuesday.

The mainstream media is all over the alleged “mail bomber” suspect, Caesar Sayoc, as they should be, and yet there has been little mention of Ryan.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions says Sayoc could potentially be charged with five federal crimes and serve up to 58 years in prison – which was later corrected to 48 years.

A fingerprint on the envelope containing one of the mail bombs sent to prominent Democrats nationwide, as well as DNA on two other packages, allowed officials to close in on a suspect, 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, who was arrested Friday morning.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a 2:30 p.m. press conference from Washington, D.C., that Sayoc, from Aventura, Florida, faces five federal charges and up to 48 years in prison. He confirmed the five charges are: interstate transportation of an explosive, illegal mailing of explosives, threats against former presidents and certain other persons, threatening interstate communications and assaulting federal officers. Even though Sayoc was detained in Florida, he will be prosecuted in New York City.

FBI Director Christopher Wray weighed-in:

More on Sayoc, per CBS News:

Several law enforcement sources told CBS News that Sayoc was born in 1962. Records show that his full name is Cesar Altieri Sayoc and that he appears to have a criminal history in Broward County, Florida.

A fingerprint was uncovered from a package bomb sent to Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, Wray said. The print was then connected to Sayoc.

Wray also said there was a possible DNA connection relating to one of Sayoc’s past arrests. A law enforcement source had said that DNA evidence on one of the devices played a part in leading investigators to the suspect, CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton reported.

Stay tuned for more very soon…
