Another suspect arrested in ricin letters case

Did the FBI get it right this time? Wall Street Journal: J. Everett Dutschke, 41 years old, of Tupelo, Miss., was charged with possessing a toxin for use as a weapon, among other charges, the U.S. attorney's office said. He is scheduled to appear in federal court in Oxford, Miss. on Monday. Mr. Dutschke was taken into custody without incident, according to an FBI spokeswoman. The arrest follows a tumultuous week in which the man initially charged with sending the letters, Paul Kevin Curtis, a 45 year-old Elvis impersonator who had quarreled with Mr. Dutschke, was released after evidence and testimony in federal court led investigators to focus on Mr. Dutschke. Mr. Dutschke, a martial-arts instructor, rock musician and failed political candidate, allowed FBI agents to search his home and his business this week. His attorney, Lori Nail Basham, said earlier this week that he was cooperating fully. Later in the week, investigators searched places that Mr. Dutschke recently visited. Neither Mr. Dutschke nor Ms. Basham could be reached to comment Saturday. This recipe suggests that just about anyone can make ricin, although handling it without killing yourself appears to be a challenge. Dutschke went to great lengths to try and frame Curtis, while he wasn't bright enough to avoid leaving a trail that any competent law enforcement agency could follow. Given that the suspect is facing charges of fondling a 7 year old girl, perhaps he felt he had nothing to lose and decided to try and settle the score with Curtis. He's lucky to be alive.

A former Republican candidate for Mississippi’s House of Representatives named J. Everett Dutschke expressed disbelief and dismay Tuesday shortly after a man he was accused of framing for mailing letters that tested positive for the poison ricin to President Barack Obama and other officials was released from jail.

.........................

Late Update: An official with the Mississippi Republican Party informed us Dutschke also had another failed political campaign. In 2008, one year after he lost the race against Holland as a Republican, Dutschke ran for Election Commissioner of Mississippi’s District Five as a Democrat. He lost that election to a man named John Edwards.

Seems to me that if they arrest everyone in Mississippi, they might (only might) get the right offender. A better solution might be to fire everyone in DHS and Secret Service and start over anew with competent personnel. The DHS, FBI and Secret Service are an embarrassment.
