Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez's uncle is not being detained in Jordan because he is connected to the attack, a family spokesperson, who does not want to be identified, told the Times Free Press.

But Jordanian officials are holding Asaad Ibrahim Asaad Haj Ali so he can be questioned about his contact with his nephew, the spokesperson said.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has finished interviewing the immediate family. Each member was questioned for many, many hours. Friends have been extensively questioned as well. FBI investigators raided a local apartment complex on Mountain Creek Road on Monday from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., neighbors told the Times Free Press.

And all of Abdulazeez's electronic communications and personal writings have been reviewed, the spokesperson said.
