Mississippi man released after arrest in ricin-letter probe, FBI conducts new search
The Mississippi man charged with sending ricin-laced letters to President Obama was released on bond Tuesday, as the FBI searched the Mississippi home of a possible second suspect amid an apparent probe into whether the first suspect might have been framed.
Jeff Woodfin, chief deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service in Oxford, Miss., confirmed the release of Paul Kevin Curtis to the Associated Press but said he didn’t know if there were any conditions on the release.
Shortly afterward, FBI searched the home of a possible second suspect. The FBI zeroed in on this individual earlier in the day, a source told Fox News.
Two sources had earlier confirmed to Fox News that the FBI was looking into the possibility that Curtis might have been framed as part of a grudge against him from someone in his neighborhood. A detention hearing for Curtis that was scheduled for Tuesday has also been postponed.
Doesn’t this make you feel safe? If the FBI can’t find a man that tries to kill a president, how much faith can the people put in them?
