Fox News alert on a big development on yesterday's breaking news a federal lab has now confirmed.
That it was in fact rice and that was sent to Mississippi senator Roger Wicker this week.
The same poison investigators think was sent to President Obama neither lawmaker got anywhere near the letters which were intercepted long before they got to them.
A suspect has been charged now.
And the charges sending.
Well I'd actually -- that the charge were told was something having to do with.
Threatening the president.
Initially we thought he'd be charged with more perhaps he will be but the man Paul Kevin Curtis.
Is no stranger to the FBI.
He's a 45 year old whom lights as an Elvis impersonator and seems to believe that there is a conspiracy putting him on the front lines of a secret war.
John Roberts is live in Oxford Mississippi with more of the bizarre details John.
The initial appearance for Kevin Curtis maybe just wrapped up a few minutes ago and during that we've got potentially some breaking news.
Listening in on conversations between US attorneys and the judge.
Say that there may and I stress may.
Still be a fourth letter out there.
They're not quite clear about that at this point but -- did tell the judge there may be a fourth letter out there.
So in terms of the suspect Kevin Curtis in the charges he faces he does face threatening the life of the president.
We thought initially that he may face more serious charges.
Use of a weapon of mass destruction and terrorism.
It looks like they didn't throw that -- -- him but he does face potential.
Fifteen years in prison for his actions sitting at the the table with his attorney Christie -- we overheard him say quote.
I would never be involved in that talking about sending these letters to what do we know about this guy Kevin Curtis we do know.
That he is a musician around Mississippi -- is an Elvis impersonator.
Who is played at several events including events for politicians.
-- mayoral candidate Tupelo he may have also played at an event.
For senator -- he also subscribes to a conspiracy theory that he believes he -- covered back in 1999 in which the northern Mississippi medical center.
Was involved in the trafficking of body parts.
Of course the medical center denies that he tried repeatedly over years to get people listen to him including sending letters to -- state represented Roger Wicker.
Then senator Trent Lott as well as senator Thad Cochran.
Know what would listen to -- it appears as though he opts.
And upped his attempts to get people to listen to him the FBI currently.
At Curtis -- home in Corinth Mississippi that's in the northern part of the state right along the border with Tennessee just a stone's throw down the road for Memphis.
Where these letters were mailed they are going through the house with a fine tooth comb.
Wearing appropriate protective gear because deadly rice and was found.
In the those letters -- the FBI.
Try to find out what the source of that rice and maybe also and other questions if in fact Curtis did do this why did his letter writing campaign.
Subtly turn into something far more sinister.
New contents from those letters received by the president.
At least that the mail facility as well listen to senator wicker and as well -- to a judge a state judge in that Tupelo Mississippi.
Say the -- hall and in which all -- quote.
No one wanted to listen to me before there are still missing pieces.
Talking about the body parts and also a reference to an online book that Curtis wrote.
Under the same title may be I have your attention now even if that means someone must die.
The next court appearance for Curtis is tomorrow to bond hearing is likely that might be way because maybe it's unlikely the person in his situation would make off.
John thank you.
