FBI agent testifies about evidence against suspect in ricin-mailing case

An FBI agent has testified that he could not say whether agents have found ricin in the home of a Mississippi man accused of mailing the toxin to the president and a senator.

Agent Brandon M. Grant testified at a hearing Friday in Oxford, Miss., for Paul Kevin Curtis Prosecutors had asked to delay the hearing because the investigation was still ongoing. But a judge refused that request.

Grant stressed that the investigation is ongoing and that he does not know what may have been found with the hearing approaching two hours long. He says investigators searching the home did find a package they were interested in. But he did not yet know what was in it.

Grant says one fingerprint found on the letter sent to a Mississippi judge did not match Curtis.
