The FBI has arrested a Tupelo, Miss., man in connection with the ricin-laced letters sent to President Obama, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker and a Mississippi judge.
Charges were initially filed against Paul Kevin Curtis, an Elvis impersonator, but have since been dropped. Curtis said he was being framed and identified Dutschke as a “potential culprit” Monday. Dutschke, a former Mississippi House of Representatives candidate, has ties to Curtis, Sen. Wicker and the Mississippi judge who received ricin-laced letters. In 2007, Dutschke accused Curtis of tearing down his campaign signs.
Update: Dutschke was charged with being in possession of a biological toxin Saturday.
