Shades of the Amerithrax witch hunt.
Here’s the weak, bogus affidavit presented to the court written by FBI Special Agent Brandon Grant.
Suspected ricin mailer released from custody as all charges dropped
“A US attorney’s motion to dismiss without prejudice charges against suspected ricin mailer Paul Kevin Curtis has been accepted by federal judicial authorities. Citing “new information,” the US Justice Department is evidently moving on to other suspects in the case. Federal marshals released Curtis earlier on Tuesday.
Authorities had confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Curtis, 45, was no longer in federal custody less than a week after being apprehended.”
Ricin letter suspect released; FBI searching second Mississippi man’s home
“On Monday, an FBI agent testified that a search of Curtis’ vehicle and home did not yield any ricin or castor beans, the ingredients needed to make the poison.
“There was no apparent ricin, castor beans or any material there that could be used for the manufacturing, like a blender or something,” Agent Brandon Grant said in an Oxford, Miss., courtroom, reported The Associated Press. He said there was a possibility Curtis could have thrown away the processor, and that computer technicians were taking a deeper look at Curtis’ computer after an initial search didn’t find documents or searches connected to ricin.”
