Police found knives and notes praising the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) inside the truck, and according to court documents, recovered two cellphones.
A law enforcement source tells CBS News authorities “tracked the numbers on the phones and have linked them to ‘sympathizers of a radical cause’ who were already on ‘New York police radar.'” The source says Saipov made calls to someone of those numbers “the day of the attack.”
Five days before the attack, London-based graphic designer Damian Erskine, 34, and his girlfriend were inside Saipov’s Uber car for an hour. He picked them up at Newark International Airport.
“Obviously you don’t get to know someone in an hour, but you get a vibe there was certainly nothing that was– that would give you any sense of what was to come,” Erskine said.
Sources close to the investigation say an associate of Saipov who they were looking for,, has now retained a lawyer and is set to be questioned by authorities on Friday.
