Silk Road Vendor Sent Obama Ricin Letter

“A former vendor on the now-defunct online black market bazaar known as Silk Road sent a letter laced with the poison Ricin to U.S. President Barack Obama, according to a letter submitted by an official at the Department of Homeland Security.

Brian de Vallance, the acting assistant secretary for legislative affairs for DHS, briefly mentioned the poisoning attempt in a letter he sent the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. Officials from various federal agencies submitted letters to the committee, which had requested information in August for a hearing on digital currencies that took place Monday.”
