Was Dr. Bruce Ivins obsessed with Kappa Kappa Gamma the “Curveball Connection”?
I find it interesting that it is stated as fact, that Ivins was obsessed with the Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority but there is scant evidence that this obsession existed at all. He may or may not have had a girlfriend or been rebuffed by a girl that was in that sorority in college in Cincinnati, he may or may not have been to a college campuses within the last 30 years where there may or may not have been a Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority.
Who besides unnamed US officials, perhaps my mailman, Curveball, can definitively state that there is evidence that this obsession exists at all?
If that obsession even did exist what would it prove? The FBI states there is no evidence that he was in Princeton on the day the anthrax-laced letters were sent. What else is there around that mailbox could he or anyone be connected too.
Exactly where was Ivins the day the anthrax was mailed. Are there credit card receipts, did he get a parking ticket was he online that day what about his cell phone calls?
Did he fly to Princeton did he drive and get gas on the way there or back. If it’s a 195 mile trip almost 400 miles round trip he would have had too.
Lets answer these questions first!.
Who besides unnamed US officials even say that that there was a sorority fixation. Is this the Curveball connection? When you don’t have the evidence ruin the dead mans character. This has the stink of a planted story.
From the AP wire
The mailbox just off the campus of Princeton University where the letters were mailed sits about 100 yards away from where the college’s Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter stores its rush materials, initiation robes and other property. Sorority members do not live there, and the Kappa chapter at Princeton does not provide a house for the women.
Multiple U.S. officials told The Associated Press that Ivins was obsessed with Kappa Kappa Gamma, going back as far as his own college days at the University of Cincinnati when he apparently was rebuffed by a woman in the sorority. The officials all spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case publicly.
There is nothing to indicate Ivins was focused on any one sorority member or other Princeton student, the officials said. Instead, officials said, Ivins’ e-mails and other documents detail his long-standing fixation on the organization.
An adviser to the Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter at Princeton, Katherine Breckinridge Graham, said Monday she was interviewed by FBI agents “over the last couple of years” about the case. She said she could not provide any details about the interview because she signed an FBI nondisclosure form.
However, Graham said there was nothing to indicate that any of the sorority members had anything to do with Ivins.
“Nothing odd went on,” said Graham, an attorney and Kappa alumna.
Kappa Kappa Gamma executive director Lauren Paitson, reached at the sorority’s headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, initially told an AP reporter Monday afternoon she would provide a comment shortly. She did not answer subsequent phone messages or e-mails seeking that response.
Lets start questioning the facts.
