6. Don't forget that ABC was also behind linking Hatfill to Greendale School
Remember when Hatfill was their person of interest? Ross made the connection between Hatfield and "Greendale School" (since one does not exist in NJ) because there was a school named Greendale near where Hatfield worked in Africa.

Bloodhounds May Have Found Anthrax Suspect
Bloodhounds Lead Investigators to Ex-Government Scientist in Anthrax Case
By Brian Ross and David Scott

Oct. 22

The FBI is using an elite team of specially trained dogs and leads from agents deployed to Africa in its investigation of former government scientist Steven Hatfill and his possible role in the five anthrax deaths.


These bloodhounds - considered by the FBI to be the best in the country at what they do - were each given the scent extracted from anthrax letters posted last year and each, independently, then led handlers to the Maryland apartment of the same man - Steven Hatfill.

One of the bloodhounds, Lucy, then led handlers directly to Hatfill.


As ABCNEWS has previously reported, Hatfill lived near a Greendale primary school while he attended medical school in Rhodesia. Greendale School was the phony return address used in the anthrax-laced letters sent to lawmakers and the media last fall.


Thanks in part to ABC's reporting, many were left with the impression that Hatfill was responsible. As a result, a little over a month ago, on June 28th, the government agreed to pay Hatfill over $5.8 million for ruining his reputation and his life.
