Suspect in ricin case feared conspiracy...

Via NYT

A Corinth man charged with mailing letters containing ricin to national leaders believed that he had uncovered a conspiracy to sell body parts on the black market, and he maintains that he is innocent, his lawyer said Thursday. The suspect, Paul Kevin Curtis, 45, an Elvis impersonator, is accused of threatening President Obama, Senator Roger Wicker and a Mississippi judge. The letters said: “Maybe I have your attention now even if that means someone must die. This must stop.” Mr. Wicker said Thursday that Mr. Curtis once worked as Elvis at a party where the senator and his wife were among the hosts. Mr. Wicker called him “quite entertaining: but said that “my impression is that since that time he’s had mental issues and perhaps is not as stable as he was back then.”


UPDATE: Feds find no ricin in suspects home, hearing delayed
