Florida Department of Corrections officials today confirmed Gossip Extra‘s scoop that an inmate was suspected in the toxic white powder attack on the Palm Beach County State Attorney‘s office.

However, said Communications Director Ann Howard, a search of the unidentified inmate’s cell didn’t turn up evidence he did anything wrong.

“We received a call from the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s office about a particular inmate at (Florida State Prison) Raiford,” Howard said. “We did speak with the inmate and he swears he had nothing to do with it.

“We then searched his room but nothing indicated he came into the possession of a powdery white substance,” Howard said.

She referred further questions to the State Attorney Michael McAuliffe‘s office. His spokeswoman declined comment.

Three employee and a Hazmat rescue worker were sickened early Tuesday and the downtown office building shut down when a powder leaked from an envelope in the mail room. The envelope was addressed to McAuliffe and also included a threatening letter.

In another development, a law enforcement official who asked to remain anonymous said the yet-to-be-identified substance contained a high dose of protein, indicating it could be composed party of a health supplement used by body-builders.
