Paul Kevin Curtis, the Mississippi man and Elvis impersonator arrested for sending poisoned letters to President Obama and a GOP Senator, was released today with the charges dropped because of new information uncovered in the ongoing investigation. Curtis's attorney, Christi McCoy, claims an enemy of Curtis framed him for the crime, stating that phrases he uses on social media were used in the ricin-laced letters in order to set up her client.
Is there really a conspiracy theory in the works meant to ruin the life of known conspiracy theorist Curtis? The Washington Post detailed his speculations about a body harvesting black market he supposedly stumbled across in 1999, including a Facebook post Curtis wrote earlier this month. "I have lost most of my friends. I have spent more than $130,000.00 on legal fee's in 13.5 yrs. They burned down my home, killed my dogs, my cat, my rabbit, blew up my 1966 Plymouth Valent. They destroyed my marriage, they distracted my career, they stalked, they trolled, they came in to my home, took my computers, had me arrested 22 times..." Could there be some truth to his claims that someone, for whatever reason, is out to get him?
What do you think?
