I’m posting this again to answer the “how could it have happened.”
This is from 1975, and it gives me the willies!
From an updated story, on the Palm Beach Daily News website:
At a press conference at the Limbaugh property, Palm Beach Police spokesman Fred Hess said the package appears to not be dangerous or hazardous. He said it was delivered late this afternoon and was X-rayed, as is all mail sent to the Limbaughs’ home. When Limbaugh’s staff saw what appeared to be wires in the package through the X-ray, they called police.
The package was sent by a man in Pennsylvania as a “business opportunity” for Limbaugh, Hess said. The man was not identified, but when authorities called him he apologized, Hess said.
The package contained an electronic placque commemorating the assassinations of Abraham Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth. No further details about the plaque were immediately available.
