James Everett Dutschke
An Elvis impersonator who was ultimately cleared of charges that he sent poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and others has filed a defamation lawsuit against the current suspect in the case.
The first time James Everett Dutshcke’s name came up in court regarding ricin-laced letters sent to President Barack Obama and others, he wasn’t the man charged in the case. And it was a defense lawyer for the first man to fall under suspicion, not the government, pointing the finger at Dutschke.
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.”
The Mississippi man charged with making and possessing ricin as part of the investigation into poison-laced letters sent to President Barack Obama and others was expected to appear in court Monday.
