Ricin Letters Update: Another Frame Up; Actress Shannon Guess Arrested in TX

You just can’t make this stuff up.

Last time it was a one time Wayne Newton impersonator framing an Elvis impersonator, now we have a cat woman costume loving actress framing her former military husband. We thought the message in the letter was a bit ‘over the top’.

Meeeeeow.

Via Daily News:

Rogers Guess, who’s appeared on ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Vampire Diaries,’ had last week told authorities that her husband, army veteran Nathan Richardson, was behind the letters. But now authorities have arrested the mother of five for allegedly sending the poison-laced letters herself.

Gee, go figure!

The couple, reportedly expecting their first child in October, had been in the process of getting a divorce, which may have been a factor in Rogers Guess’ initial accusation against her husband.

John Delk, a lawyer for Nathan Richardson, told The Associated Press Thursday that Richardson may have been set up by his wife, in retribution for the pending split.

Ricin Letters Update: Dutschke Enters Plea

James Dutschke has waived his hearing and has entered a not guilty plea:

OXFORD – The Tupelo man accused in a scheme to send poisoned letters to public officials pleaded not guilty Wednesday through court documents.

This way, J. Everett Dutschke avoided a scheduled federal court appearance in Oxford today to enter this plea before Magistrate Judge S. Allan Alexander.

Dutschke, 41, stands indicted on five counts that he made the poison, ricin and used the mail to send it as a weapon to threaten President Barack Obama, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker of Tupelo and Lee County Justice Court Judge Sadie Holland.

When he signed the hearing waiver, he drew a “smiley face” beside his signature as he’s done on numerous other court documents.

Ricin Letters Update: Dutschke Indicted On 5 Counts

We have an update on the Ricin letter case originating out of Tupelo. James Dutschke has been indicted by a Grand Jury on 5 counts and plans to plead not guilty.

Clarion Ledger:

James Everett Dutschke, 41, has been charged in a five-count indictment returned by the Northern District grand jury on one count of knowingly developing, producing, stockpiling, transferring, acquiring, retaining and possessing a biological agent, toxin and delivery system, for use as a weapon, and with attempting to do the same; one count of threatening the President of the United States by mail; two counts of threatening others by mail; and one count of falsifying, concealing and covering up by trick, scheme and fraudulent device, material facts, to impede the investigation of threatening letters containing ricin, in an effort to make it appear that someone else had sent the threatening letters, according to the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal.

Also, another arrest might be coming:

Authorities said that a dust mask Dutschke removed from his former martial arts studio and dumped in a nearby trash can tested positive for ricin and the DNA of two people, including Dutschke. Authorities haven’t said who else’s DNA was on the mask, but an FBI agent testified during a preliminary hearing that most of the genetic material on it belonged to Dutschke.

We’ve reached out to Kevin Curtis and have opened up a dialogue with him, asking for comment and his side of the story.
