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.
