Corinth police officer outside house in West Hills Subdivision after taking Paul Kevin Curtis into custody under suspicion of sending suspicious letters to US President Barack Obama and US Senator Roger Wicker, Mississippi
TUPELO, Miss. (AP) -- A court filing says charges have been dropped against a Mississippi man accused of sending ricin-laced letters to President Barack Obama and others.
The one-sentence document was filed Tuesday, hours after Paul Kevin Curtis was released from custody. The document says the ongoing investigation has revealed new but unspecified information.
An FBI agent had testified in court that no evidence of ricin was found at Curtis's home.
Meanwhile, authorities searched Tuesday at the home of another Mississippi man in connection with the case.
