New Possible Ricin Letter Sent to Obama

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

A new letter possibly containing ricin was sent to President Obama, federal law enforcement officials confirmed to CBS News Thursday. The deadly toxin was sent to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in two letters earlier this week.

All three letters were sent from Shreveport, Louisiana and are said to contain similar markings, according to reports.

Last month, a Mississippi man was arrested for trying to send ricin-laced letters to federal officials, including President Obama.
