Ricin Suspect Held Without Bail

James Everett Dutschke, the Mississippi man accused of mailing letters laced with the potent toxin ricin to President Obama and other officials, is being held without bail. A federal magistrate ruled that Dutschke is a “danger to the community,” and worried that he would try to run if he was released. The ruling is pending a preliminary hearing set for Thursday. This is just the latest twist in the bizarre ricin case. Dutschke is actually the second suspect arrested for the crime. The first, a man who impersonates Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly for a living, is no longer in custody.
