Paul Kevin Curtis is the 45-year-old Mississippi man that the FBI has apprehended in connection with the ricin-positive letters sent to President Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker.

Both letters said: "To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance." Both were signed, "I am KC and I approve this message."

In Corinth, a city of about 14,000, police cordoned off part of a subdivision where Curtis lived. At least five police cars were on the scene, but there didn't appear to be any hazardous-material crews and no neighbors were evacuated. The one-story, single-family home is similar to the others in the neighborhood, with red brick with white trim. [Associated Press]

According to his Facebook page, Kevin Curtis Live, Paul Kevin Curtis is a conspiracy theorist.

Online posts refer to a conspiracy Curtis alleges he uncovered when working at a local hospital between 1998-2000, when he says he stumbled upon: 'a refrigerator full of dismembered body parts & organs wrapped in plastic in the morgue of the largest non-metropolitan healthcare organization in the United States of America.'

Oh, and an Elvis impersonator. Paul Kevin Curtis has performed as Prince, Kid Rock, and a slew of other popular musicians. Per his page on GigSalad.com, a website designed to help people book live entertainment, Curtis is a seven-time finalist in the "Images of the King" contest in Memphis. He also boasts of a three-octave range.
