On April 5, Mock was included in a “Seeking Information” list that the FBI posted to its website and social media pages requesting the public’s assistance. On May 1, a person identified Mock based on a screenshot they had seen on Facebook, which showed Mock wearing the same clothes as the man captured in the body-worn camera footage, posing with a woman in front of the Minnesota pillar at the World War II Memorial in Washington.

The charging documents also included Facebook comments Mock was alleged to have written. On Jan. 8, Mock allegedly said in a post “I went to the Capitol not knowing what to expect but said goodbye to my 4 children, not sure if I was going to come home. I was at peace with that knowledge. I held my own and then some when I watched Capitol police beating women and old men. When faced with real men, free men, brave men, they fled with fear and tears in their eyes. I supported the blue big,” the comment ends.
