Default Kevin Curtis released, charges dropped

http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/23/us/ric...html?hpt=hp_t3

(CNN) -- Thrust into the headlines last week, accused of sending ricin-tainted letters to President Barack Obama and two other officials, Paul Kevin Curtis is a free man again.
"It's like a train has been lifted off my shoulders," Curtis told CNN's "Piers Morgan Live" on Tuesday. "I'm overwhelmed. I'm extremely happy to be vindicated and out and able to see my kids."
Charges were dropped and "new information" became available, U.S. Attorney Felicia Adams said.
Authorities are investigating whether someone may have tried to falsely implicate the Elvis impersonator from Corinth, Mississippi, a law enforcement source said on condition of anonymity.
Curtis was arrested April 17 and charged with sending a threat to the president last week after letters containing the poison triggered security scares around Washington.
Ricin suspect released from custody Ex-ricin suspect: Thought cops said rice Atty. for ex-suspect: He was framed CNN Explains: Ricin
Curtis said his arrest was surreal.
"It looked like a scene out of a movie," said Curtis, adding that there were hooded men with machine guns. "I was just overwhelmed. I just kept asking, 'what is ricin? What did I do?'"
Curtis' attorney, Christi McCoy, said her client has been framed by someone who used several phrases Curtis likes to use on social media.
The letters read, in part: "To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance."
They were signed "I am KC and I approve this message," a source told CNN.
They each had a Memphis, Tennessee, postmark and no return address.
McCoy said she was sure someone else was to blame.
"I do believe that someone who was familiar and is familiar with Kevin just simply took his personal information and did this to him," McCoy said. "It is absolutely horrific that someone would do this."
Curtis said it was an eye-opener for him.
"I think now, how many people are thrown in jail because of circumstantial evidence and someone can frame you that easily," he said.
Curtis had been accused of sending letters containing "a suspicious granular substance" to Obama; Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Mississippi; and Sadie Holland, a Justice Court judge in Lee County, Mississippi.
The FBI said the substance tested positive for ricin, a toxin derived from castor beans that has no known antidote.
No illnesses had been found as a result of exposure to the toxin.
He says it well in the video. "I was already assumed guilty before I was even told what it was about."

It died when the media decided it needed to kill anyone's chance at a fair trial or respect a person's privacy prior to a verdict.

This. That dumb bitch Nancy Grace is one of the worst.

Whoever really did that, tried too hard to frame this KC guy. No one that tries to do this for real, is going to make it that obvious.
