The Mississippi man who was arrested for sending letters to Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker and President Barack Obama that tested positive for ricin is an Elvis impersonator in his spare time.
Paul Kevin Curtis, who performs under the stage name “KC,” mailed the letters from Memphis, Tenn., where Presley lived much of his adult life.
The letters both said, “To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.” They were both signed, “I am KC and I approve this message.”
Despite mailing the letters, Curtis appears to be sympathetic about some things, Newsmax reported. After the Boston Marathon tragedy on Monday, he wrote this on his Facebook page:
“Heart breaking. I have an 8 year old son with the smile of an angel. This world is not what it used to be and the hopes of all are not what they ‘USED’ to be. We have let God down. We removed prayer from schools in 62 . . . we have staged wars simply for profits in oil and drugs . . . we have lied our way from the capitol to the pulpit. We the people should be ashamed. I weep for the future of our children. God bless.”
After news about Curtis’ alleged involvement with the letters leaked out, one of his friends posted this message:
“Hey, Kevin . . . did you do this ? The 'Poisoned Letter' attacks ? I just saw on FOX News that you are being questioned about it . . . I hope this is not true . . . I've known you a long time . . . definitely not cool, man . . . ”
