Alleged Ricin Letter Suspect Freed
Paul Kevin Curtis, an Elvis impersonator from Corinth, Mississippi, was arrested for sending Ricin-laced letters to President Obama, Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Mississippi; and Sadie Holland, a Justice Court judge in Lee County, Mississippi.
He is a free man today.
Attorney Christi McCoy said her client has been framed by someone who used several phrases Curtis likes to use on social media.
“I do believe that someone who was familiar and is familiar with Kevin just simply took his personal information and did this to him,” McCoy told CNN. “It is absolutely horrific that someone would do this.”
A search of Curtis’ residence and vehicle produced no trace of Ricin, and no material used to make it.
Curtis’ passion has been in the field of organ donor ship, and has been active in what he considers necessary changes.
“I have a client who is not only not guilty, he is truly 100% innocent,” she added. She did acknowledge that he has “a history of some mental issues,” but said they are not severe.
