President Obama was not the only target, two separate letters, which both tested positive of the same drug, were mailed to the White House and the office of Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker.
Since Monday’s bombing, tensions have been high across the country , however the FBI stated this incident has “no indication of a connection to the attack in Boston.”
Law enforcement have arrested a man in connection with the letters, Paul Kevin Curtis of Corinth, Mississippi.
According to a FBI statement, Curtis is “believed to be responsible for the mailings of the three letters sent through the U.S. Postal Inspection Service which contained a granular substance that preliminarily tested positive for ricin. The letters were addressed to a U.S. senator, the White House and a Mississippi justice official.”
