5. Then there's the question of the copier
Edited on Thu Aug-14-08 10:20 AM by Mabus
I was looking at old articles and read in numerous articles that the FBI found the copier used to copy the anthrax letters and that the copier was publicly accessible. I mentioned it to a few other DU'ers and suffragette came up with a good example of the copier being mentioned and showing it was reported and/or known. From 2002, The American Prospect (excerpted below):

Identifying the lab from which the anthrax in the letters originated will supply one major piece of the puzzle. But investigators point out that this information is far from sufficient. Indeed, the classic criminal investigator's questions -- who had not just the weapon, but the motive and the opportunity? -- will most likely be addressed by those gumshoe special agents out in the field questioning people, gathering testimony, and testing hypotheses. Already investigators have identified the Xerox machine used to photocopy the letters sent to Democratic senators, NBC, and the New York Post last fall, a source close to the investigation said. The machine is "publicly accessible" and is in New Jersey, but in what town or what facility was not disclosed.

So, if they know which copier was used why haven't tied Ivins to it or its location? Wouldn't that help the FBI's case? Or is it not being mentioned because they weren't able to tie Ivins to it?
