NBC — A Texas woman has been arrested in connection with the mailing of three letters containing a form of the poison ricin to President Obama, New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and the director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, federal authorities said.
Shannon Rogers Guess Richardson of New Boston, Texas, originally called the Federal Bureau of Investigation claiming her husband had sent the letters, officials say. The investigators found she had sent the letters herself, they said.
The woman was arrested in Arkansas on charges that will be filed Friday afternoon.
