Suspicious Powdery Letter Sent to 6 Governors

By  | 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Suspicious letters containing powdery substances addressed to governors were intercepted in Missouri and
at least five other states today.
But preliminary tests found the powders sent to Alabama, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana and Rhode Island were not harmful.
Test results on the Missouri letter are expected Tuesday.
Missouri Highway Patrol spokesman Capt. Tim Hull says the suspicious letter was found at an offsite state mail distribution center. The Capitol remained open and operating normally.
In a few of the other states, the letters disrupted state governments, forcing some evacuations and testing for workers who might have been exposed.
