(Newser) – The Mississippi man accused of sending ricin to President Obama and a Republican senator is an impersonator of some 70 celebrities with a colorful online presence and a penchant for conspiracy theories, reports the Clarion-Ledger in a look at Paul Kevin Curtis, who was arrested yesterday. Curtis, who apparently has a three-octave range, offers a warning on his Facebook that your friends' body parts are at risk of harvesting for the black market. He also says he's wrapped up in a war on the mafia and accuses authorities of relentless attacks. "They burned down my home, killed my dogs, my cat, my rabbit, blew up my 1966 Plymouth Valent," he posted.

"They destroyed my marriage, they distracted my career, they stalked, they trolled, they came in to my home, took my computers, had me arrested 22 times, and guess what? I am still a thorn in their corrupt anals! I will remain here until Jesus Christ decides it's time for me to go," he wrote. "I think he’s insane and out to harm people," says Tupelo mayoral candidate Jason Shelton, who says he's aware of Curtis but isn't friends with him. He says he blocked Curtis on Facebook following constant messages.

TRUTH BE TOLD ...... I for one, have a problem with this guy being the person who mailed the "Ricin" to Obama and the Senator. This Elvis guy just doesn't look like a person (with the time, or intelligence) who could make Ricin .. and no matter how hard I try .. I just can't imagine this guy with his background, doing it. --- MY OPINION? ..... They got the wrong guy. ------------------------------- REALLY
