TUPELO, Miss. — A second Mississippi man says the FBI is searching his home in connection with the ricin letter case.
Everett Dutschke says in a phone interview with The Associated Press that the FBI was at his home Tuesday for a search related to the mailing of poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. Senator and a Mississippi judge.
Dutschke has maintained his innocence and says he doesn't know anything about the ingredients for ricin.
Earlier Tuesday, suspect Paul Kevin Curtis was released from custody, though authorities didn't explain why. His attorney has said he's innocent and may have been framed. The third day of a preliminary and detention hearing was cancelled without explanation earlier Tuesday.
