No Autopsy

Ivins's death is being investigated as an apparent suicide from a drug overdose, said Lieutenant Shawn Martyak of the Frederick Police Department's criminal investigation division. Based on laboratory test results of blood taken from the body, the state medical examiner ``determined that an autopsy wouldn't be necessary'' to determine the cause of death, Martyak said.

The Los Angeles Times, which first reported the story, said Ivins took an overdose of prescription Tylenol with codeine.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has come under fire for failing to solve the crimes. In June, the U.S. agreed to pay a settlement valued at $5.8 million to resolve a lawsuit by another Fort Detrick researcher, Steven Hatfill, who said the government improperly identified him publicly as a ``person of interest'' in the case.


Now, I'd say that the whole thing stinks to High Heaven, but then that would be a Conspiracy Theory and I don't want people to think I believe such things.

So glad to have all the Anthrax stuff behind us.
