APTOPIX Suspicious Letters
Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., left, and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., talk on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, April 17, 2013, before a hearing with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. A letter addressed to Wicker, believed to be poisoned with ricin or a similarly toxic substance, was intercepted at a mail facility outside the capital earlier this week. Levin issued a statement saying an aide in his Saginaw, Mich., office had also received a suspicious-looking letter. "The letter was not opened, and the staffer followed the proper protocols for the situation, including alerting the authorities, who are now investigating," Levin said in a statement. (AP Photo/J.
