17. At the very least, was it on his way to the mail box
or was it in another part of the state that doesn't fit their story that Ivins left work that morning and mailed the letters.

If it is "publicly accessible" is it in a place that has limited hours and limited access to the general public? Was it near a university or private company doing anthrax research? I can say that a copier is "publicly accessible" and mean that it is available to a limited number of users, like the users of an office or I could mean a Kinko's. It's not like there was a copy machine sitting on a corner that anyone could walk up to and use. It was located in a building somewhere. All I want to know is if it is near a place where Ivins had been seen or was likely to go? Is there other evidence, like a credit card purchase or a surveillance tape, that puts in the area?

It's just weird how many little details like this weren't used by the FBI in their search warrant affidavit. Imagine how much more incriminating their affidavits would have been if they included passages like:

"The FBI identified the location of the copy machine used to make the letters included in the anthrax-laced letters. That copy machine is on the route that Ivins would have taken to get to the mailbox in Princeton."

Or, "the copy machine that was found to have been the source for the letters included in the anthrax-laced letters was found a block from the mailbox and was publicly accessible on a day that Ivins took off from work and allegedly mailed the letters."

Or "Ivins was often seen in the area near where the copy machine was located."
