Second Ricin Letter Was Sent to Obama – Signed “I Am KC and I Approve This Message” (Updated)
Authorities announced this morning that a second suspected ricin letter was sent to President Obama. Both ricin letters to Obama and to Senator Wicker (R-MS) were signed “I am KC and I approve this message.”
FOX News confirmed that the letter to Obama contained ricin poison.
FOX News reported:
An envelope thought to contain ricin was sent to the Capitol Hill office of Sen. Roger Wicker, lawmakers told Fox News, while a newly obtained FBI bulletin said a second suspicious letter was sent to President Obama.
The letter to the Mississippi Republican was intercepted at an off-site mail screening facility and never reached the Hill.
Authorities declined to comment on a suspect or any other aspect of the investigation being led by Capitol Police, but Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., told the Associated Press police have a suspect in mind.
“The person that is a suspect writes a lot of letters to members,” McCaskill said as she emerged from a classified briefing…
…An FBI bulletin obtained by Fox News also said a second letter was sent to Obama, and was intercepted. That letter is still being screened.
The bulletin said both letters included the phrase: “To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”
Both were signed, “I am KC and I approve this message.”
UPDATE: FOX News reported a third letter was sent to another US senator.
