Yet the authenticity of the photos has long been debated.
The suspect allegedly leaked the photos after hacking into victim’s Apple iCloud accounts.
According to the newly-released legal documents, the FBI seized computers and mobile phones from the home during the raid.
It is alleged that the accounts were hacked from Emilio Herrera’s IP address.
No charges have yet been filed but court papers have identified eight celebrities, but only by their initials – AS, CH, HS, JM, OW, AK, EB and AH.
Writing about the porn leaks, FBI Special Agent Josh Sedowsky said: “Based on victim account records obtained from Apple, one or more computers used at [Herrera’s house] access or attempted to access without authorization multiple celebrities’ e-mail and iCloud accounts over the course of several months.
“The IP address on Narragansett accessed 330 unique iCloud accounts between May and August 2014, according to the other.
“291 accounts were accessed more than 600 times.”
The suspect’s house was raided in October last year and agents left with a Kindle, several cellphones, computers, floppy disks, hard drives and thumb drives.
According to reports, the legal documents may be able to prove the authenticity of the celeb photos.
