Man investigated in poisoned letters missing
OZARK, Miss.- Authorities in Mississippi say they are searching for the chief person of interest in the investigation of poisoned letters sent to President Barack Obama and other officials.
Everett Dutschke had been under surveillance, but slipped away on Wednesday.
Deputies searched a home in Ozark where Dutschke was believed to have been on Wednesday, but no one was found.
The sheriff says he believes a friend of Dutschke "may be helping him to lay low."
Charges in the case were dropped against an earlier suspect.
