Sources: Powder That Sickened Four at State Attorney Mailed From Prison!

Federal investigators believe that the envelope containing the white powder that sickened four people at the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s office in West Palm Beach this morning was mailed from the Florida State Prison in Raiford, Gossip Extra has learned.

Two reliable law enforcement sources tells me tonight that FBI agents identified a suspect but are still checking some leads. West Palm Beach spokesman Chase Scott declined comment and referred all calls to the FBI office. The agency’s regional spokesman didn’t respond to an email asking for comment.

The white powder suspect, meanwhile, was recently sentenced to serious time behind bars and may be blaming prosecutors for his situation. The substance he stuffed in an envelope is still being analyzed in an FBI lab.

State prisoners are allowed to mail envelopes, and envelopes are supposed to be monitored.

Located just north of Gainesville, the Florida State Prison is considered one of the tougher prisons in the state system. With 1,400 inmates, including some on Death Row, it’s also the largest.

The first floor of the State Attorney’s office was evacuated about 9 a.m. when three employees started feeling dizzy after opening envelopes in the mail room. During the Hazmat emergency response, a rescue worker also became ill. The four were taken to Good Samaritan Medical Center, where they were treated and released.

State Attorney Michael McAuliffe said the envelope and “suspicious communication” inside were addressed to him personally.
