Ricin suspect tried to elude police before arrest

According to newly released documents, the man suspected of sending poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and others appeared to try to evade authorities in the days before his arrest.

James Everett Dutschke of Tupelo, Miss., was charged April 27 with making ricin — which was then mailed to Obama, Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker and Lee County, Miss., Judge Sadie Holland.

FBI applications for warrants were filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Oxford, Miss.
