It's good to know that Elvis has not been implicated in a terrorist act, but he could have been. While events unfolded in the Boston Marathon Bombing, a lesser story played out concerning the sending of ricintainted letters to the President, a U.S. senator and a judge. Initially, Paul Kevin Curtis, a 45- year-old Elvis impersonator from Corinth, Mississippi was charged and arrested for the threatening act, with charges being dropped days later.
The arrest of Curtis was in part facilitated by statements made on social media, matching up with those contained in the ricin letters. Conveniently, images from Curtis' Facebook account were readily available for publication to go along with stories of his arrest. Along with accounts of an uneven mental-health history, Curtis hardly fits the description of a criminal mastermind.
