The packages are due to arrive on Friday and their contents remain unknown. Joe Paul, former friend of May, says he received a Facebook message as part of a group on November 15. The message contained a photo of some of the packages.

"I don't know what's in the package. I'm just as curious as everyone else. I don't know if it's a manifesto. I think what we are all hoping to know is why," says Paul.

Early Thursday evening a television station in Atlanta reported May sent the packages to multiple recipients. Paul says he believes eight packages were sent.

"I'm hoping we'll all be able to answer why from these packages," says Paul. According to Paul, he was friends with the 2005 graduate of FSU.

Paul told First Coast News he called the Tallahassee police to let them know about May's message from his home in Washington D.C.. He says police instructed him to call local police there in D.C. when the package arrives, which he plans to do.

First Coast News reached out to the Tallahassee police department to try to confirm this but calls have not been returned.
