TUPELO, Miss. (AP) — When poison-laced letters were sent to President Barack Obama and two other officials, it didn’t take long to track down a suspect based on a phrase often used by an Elvis impersonator named Kevin Curtis: “I am KC and I approve this message.”
Curtis was soon arrested at his house in north Mississippi and charged in the case. He swore he didn’t do it, and told investigators that maybe a longtime foe, a martial arts instructor named James Everett Dutschke, might have something to do with the case.
By the time Curtis was released on April 23, the FBI was already watching Dutschke.
