OZARK, Miss. (AP) - A lawyer says authorities know how to reach a Mississippi man being investigated in the poisoned letters sent to the president and others.
Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dickinson said Thursday afternoon that his department was helping the FBI search for Everett Dutschke (DUHS'-kee). He says Dutschke had been under surveillance. His home and business had been searched earlier in the week.
Dutschke's attorney Lori Basham wrote in a text to The Associated Press that authorities know where her client is and that he continues to cooperate. She says there is no warrant for his arrest.
FBI spokeswoman Deborah Madden would not comment on the investigation or possible search.
Dutschke did not answer his cellphone when AP tried to contact him on Thursday.
Charges in the case were dropped against an earlier suspect.
