OXFORD, Miss. –  The attorney for a man accused of mailing ricin-laced letters to the president and a senator says federal authorities have scant evidence linking her client to the crime.

Christi McCoy said after a court hearing Friday that the government has offered no evidence to prove her client, Paul Kevin Curtis, had possession of any ricin.  

FBI Agent Brandon M. Grant testified during the hearing that he could not say if investigators had found ricin at Curtis’ home. McCoy says the evidence linking Curtis to the crime so far has hinged on his writings posted online.

So far, Curtis is the primary focus for investigators and the only person arrested in connection with sending those letters and a third threatening letter mailed to a judge.

  1. “…federal authorities have scant evidence linking her client to the crime.”

    They don’t have to present evidence in court anymore. If the Jew TV says he’s guilty, that’s the end of it.

    1. JR,
      And even the “evidence” that IS given in court is nothing more than a fabrication. The entire system is controlled, and if they are against….you’re toast. From the cops to the lawyers and the Judges, they are all liars. The Jury will also have a parasite or two, to make sure that if this fabricated evidence isn’t believed by all jurors, then this parasite will manipulate those who question it, into believing it.

  2. He says he didn’t do it. No motivation is given. It would have been a pointless exercise anyway, since Washington’s mail is screened. And how did this person refine the ricin, assuming he could have, from castor beans, without killing himself or others?

    No evidence other than trial by teevee?

    1. What I was thinking G Street, when I was reading other articles regarding Mr. Curtis.
      Your next to last sentence “And how did this person refine the ricin, assuming he could have, from castor beans, without killing himself or others?”
      From what I understand it is hard to do, deadly and expensive.
      Mr. Curtis doesn’t sound like he would have the resources needed to do this.
      It sounds like to me, he made too much noise about “The body parts” he found, someone didn’t like it and, much like after 9/11 letters were sent to various offices for effect. The perfect patsy. Little money for legal representation, fees, enemies in high places in his community, and had been down for awhile.
