Who is 'KC'? Hunt for mysterious letter writer 'who sent ricin-tainted parcels to Obama and Republican senator with identical message 'to expose wrong'



The FBI has launched a hunt for the person responsible for sending letters laced with the deadly poison ricin to President Obama and a Mississippi senator, it was revealed today.
The Secret Service said that the letters, which were both intercepted at a mail screening facility in Maryland on Tuesday, contained a 'suspicious substance' which was later confirmed to be ricin, a toxic component derived from castor beans and can be fatal when ingested.
According to an FBI memo obtained by the Associated Press, both letters sent to Obama and Sen. Wicker, a Republican, contained the following message: ‘To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.’
Both letters were then signed, ‘I am KC and I approve this message.’
