We are all, undoubtedly, familiar with the recent attack on president Obama, Sen. Roger Wicker and a here unnamed Mississippi justice official that has occurred in the past week. This attack came in the form of letters addressed to the aforementioned political figures, containing a highly toxic substance called ricin.
This is a very serious matter, despite the fact that the letters didn’t even contain a proper lethal dose of the deadly substance! As many are now becoming aware of, the letters had been sent by Paul Kevin Curtis, a man of little renown outside of local Elvis impersonator circles (his job of choice).
He also spent time as a Kid Rock and Buddy Holly impersonator, though he would rather describe himself as a “super entertainer” or even better “Master of Impressions.” (Kinda reminiscent of that comedy, Master of Disguise…. Turtle turtle…) But to really delve into the subject and understand what brought a man who seemed SO on top of things to commit such a heinous act, one may have to dive down the rabbit hole to the year 2001.
It was the year 2001, when his “secret war” with U.S. officials and FBI began. It was in the act of cleaning up that he “accidentally discovered a refrigerator full of dismembered body parts & organs wrapped in plastic in the morgue.” He immediately did as any of us would have, and reported it to the police, which he now likely considers his “first mistake.”
He believes that the organs, were part of a major conspiracy between the government, and the infamous La cosa Nostra (mafia) involving the black market sale of organs. It was after this that he believes he was made to be a “person of interest, where my every move was watched and videotaped.” Interesting story right? Sadly, we haven’t even scratched the surface.
In 2007 Curtis appeared on Ripoff-Report, a forum which is used by the disgruntled to expose supposed scams making the statement
“3 Years of research lead to countless court battles, cops harassing me weekly, death threats, personal & financial losses, several thefts, my home burned down, car exploded, marriage dissolved & bankruptcy.” He reported going to elected officials for help, writing letter after letter, a majority of which contained the line “I am KC and I approve this message” in the signature, I know, this cant get any better but it does!
A recent affidavit released by the Department of Justice quotes his toxic letters as saying “Maybe I have your attention now even if that means someone must die.” Senator Wicker has even commented that he’s met with Curtis at banquets and events that Curtis had performed at, saying that he feared for the mans sanity and remarking that he usually made an uneasy departure shortly after being approached by him.
Curtis wrote on his facebook that he is “on the hidden front lines of a secret war” just hours before being arrested in his home by the feds.
“My mother wants me to SHUT UP. My brothers fear me. My sister hates me. … I have lost most of my friends,” he wrote. “I have spent more than $130,000 on legal fees in 13.5 years. … They destroyed my marriage, they distracted my career, they stalked, they trolled, they came into my home, took my computers, had me arrested 22 times and guess what? I am still a thorn in the corrupt anals! I will remain here until Jesus Christ decides its time for me to go.”
Whatever the situation is, it is rather apparent that something… or rather someone in this situation is absolutely crazy, but it does lead one to wonder, what kind of person would willingly take these consequences upon themselves for the perpetuation of a sham?
