Suspect: Im on the Hidden Front Lines of a Secret War
Paul Kevin Curtis, 45, of Tupelo, Miss., has been arrested in connection with ricin letters that were sent to both Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) and President Barack Obama, The New York Times reports. Initial reports listed the suspect as Kenneth Curtis, however, the Times updated its report with the corrected name.
The letters, which were intercepted by sorting facilities before they reached their intended targets, were signed: I am KC and I approve this message.
We have an investigation that is going on that has got local and federal authorities working together, said Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson.
A few hours before federal officials announced the arrest, TheBlaze was contacted by bloggers at Lady Liberty 1885 who had noticed some key similarities between a Kevin Curtis from Tupelo, Miss. and the person suspected of sending the ricin letters.
Among several other similarities, Kevin Curtis used the phrase This is KC and I approve this message in a previous Facebook post the same exact phrase included in the ricin-laced letters
Additionally, the person who sent the ricin letters used this particular quote from Dr. John Raymond Baker to make his point: To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance. Kevin Curtis uses the same quote in the About section of his Facebook page.
The same individual lists an address in Tupelo, Miss. the city authorities say the suspect currently resides. The last message posted on Curtis Facebook page was roughly two hours before his arrest was reported.
Kevin Curtis describes himself as a Christian, but not a bench warming church going judgmental hypocrite. Under political views he lists himself as an Independent. A call made to the phone number provided on his Facebook page went unanswered.
So where’d he get the ricin?
LOL! He’s a Democrat!
I’m shocked, SHOCKED!
Ricin is incredibly easy to make. You can buy castor beans from your local organic food store.
Is that actually him?
Who is shown in the picture, is that him? There may not have been any ricin, often it’s powdered beans giving an initial positive reaction.
Not much of an attempt to conceal his identity, signing off with his initials on multiple letters.
Anyone can make it. Easier than popping popcorn.
And not a very bright one at that.
It would also be easy to frame him with the info on his facebook page.
What ricin is
Ricin is a poison found naturally in castor beans. If castor beans are chewed and swallowed, the released ricin can cause injury. Ricin can be made from the waste material left over from processing castor beans.
It can be in the form of a powder, a mist, or a pellet, or it can be dissolved in water or weak acid.
It is a stable substance under normal conditions, but can be inactivated by heat above 80 degrees centigrade (176 degrees Fahrenheit).
Where ricin is found and how it is used
Castor beans are processed throughout the world to make castor oil. Ricin is part of the waste mash produced when castor oil is made.
Ricin is easy to make from everything I’ve read.
In its simplest form its basically just a means of concentrating the extract from Castor beans.
It may be easy, but considering that a sand-grain sized particle of ricin can kill an adult, how many have survived making it ?
the New York Times won't be making any 'connections' between his politics and his crime... like they would have done if he'd been conservative.
New York Times sucks... more.
See, this is what I've been talking about. The organic food store loophole.
Why can't we just have some common sense Castor Bean control in this country?
We need it..for the children.
It’s not that tough. Get yourself some insecticide safety gear (gloves, mask, suit), do the cook outside, bleed off the oil, let the mash dry, harvest. So long as you keep half way decent barrier protocol perfectly safe.
I don’t know how accurate the news is but they arrested this guy here in Corinth last night at his home.
Its an unlikely patnership...everything that liberals hold near and dear is completely at odds w/ Christianity. This must be a case of redefinition...
Or just pick them, they grow all over in FL, looks sort of like a papaya.
CASTOR OIL??? I knew it, my mother WAS trying to kill me.........
