..."Washington (CNN) -- An envelope that tested positive for the deadly poison ricin was intercepted Tuesday afternoon at the U.S. Capitol's off-site mail facility in Washington, congressional and law enforcement sources tell CNN. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he was told the letter was addressed to the office of Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Mississippi.
A laboratory in Maryland confirmed the presence of ricin after initial field tests indicated the poison was present, Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Terrance Gainer said. The letter had a Memphis, Tennessee, postmark and no return address, Gainer wrote in an e-mail to senators and aides. In a statement late Tuesday, the U.S.
Capitol Police said more tests would be conducted at the Army's biomedical research laboratory at Fort Detrick, Maryland. Sen. Claire McCaskill told reporters after a briefing for lawmakers that a suspect has already been identified in the incident, but a knowledgeable source said no one was in custody Tuesday night.

Anyway, they are saying there is no link between this and the bombing in Boston. Whether its true or not, its one hell of a coincidence. A dose as small as a few grains of table salt can kill an adult human. Thats some deadly stuff!
Between the possible nuke attack from NK, the tragic bombing in Boston, a US Congressmen could have died a horrible death from person/s unknown, WTF is going on?? Things are getting stupid out there....
