FBI searches apartment in ricin letter case
Authorities in hazardous materials suits searched a downtown Spokane, Wash., apartment yesterday, investigating the recent discovery of a pair of letters containing the deadly poison ricin.
Few details have been released in the case, and no arrests have been made. Federal investigators have been searching for the person who sent the letters, which were postmarked Tuesday in Spokane.
The letters were addressed to the downtown post office and the adjacent federal building, but authorities have not released a potential motive.
There have been no reports of illness connected to the letters.
