Ricin Laced Letter Sent to Senator Roger Wicker

HT: Politico

A letter addressed to Senator Roger Wicker (R-Mississippi) tested positive for the deadly poison Ricin this afternoon, according to two sources, and high-ranking security officials are briefing U.S. Senators now on the situation.

The letter, which there is no word on whether it was sent to Senator Wicker's Washington or home office, contained the poison in a powdery form, which is deadly if inhaled, injected or ingested. Ricin causes the body to stop forming protein and results in death within three to five days of exposure if not treated, and if successfully treated results in long-term organ damage.

The toxin has been used before in potential attacks on government officials, as one laced letter was sent to the White House in October 2003 and caught in the mail processing room while the poison was discovered on a sorter at the mail processing room of then Senator Bill Frist the following January.

With the terrorist attack in Boston yesterday and now this unfolding situation involving a sitting U.S. Senator, it just reinforces that we are living in a world of chaos and disorder.

We will update this story when as we get more information.

Stay Tuned
