She might as well have turned herself in the first time around. A Texas woman who told FBI agents her husband had sent ricin-tainted letters to President Obama and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been arrested for allegedly sealing and sending the envelopes herself, according to the FBI. Shannon Richardson, an actress who has appeared in popular TV shows like The Walking Dead and Vampire Diaries was cuffed in Arkansas on Friday afternoon, though authorities have not yet revealed her charges. “You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns,” the letter to Bloomberg read. “Anyone who wants to come to my house will get shot in the face.” A third letter was sent to Mark Glaze, the director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
