(Newser) – Amy Bishop's background continues to get murkier: The shooting suspect was also a suspect in the attempted mail bombing of a Harvard professor in 1993, a law enforcement official said today. Bishop and husband James Anderson were questioned after Dr. Paul Rosenberg received a package containing two 6-inch pipe bombs. The official said the investigation focused on Bishop because she was reportedly worried that Rosenberg planned to give her a negative evaluation on her doctorate work.

Investigators searched their home and found a draft of a novel on Bishop's computer about a woman who killed her brother and hoped to make up for it by becoming a famous scientist. The US attorney's office did not seek charges against the couple, reports the Boston Globe.
