Shannon Rogers Guess Richardson of New Boston, Texas had called the FBI last week saying that her Veteran husband had sent the letters to Bloomberg and Obama. It appears that she may have tried to frame her husband by sending the letters herself.
A Texas woman has been arrested in connection with the mailing of three letters containing a form of the poison ricin to President Obama, New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and the director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, federal authorities said.
Shannon Rogers Guess Richardson of New Boston, Texas, originally called the Federal Bureau of Investigation claiming that her husband had sent the letters, officials said. The investigators found that she had sent the letters herself, they said.
Richardson is an actress with minor roles on television shows like The Walking Dead and the Vampire Diaries, and was arrested in Arkansas on charges that will be filed Friday afternoon, the authorities said. She has five sons, according to the New York Times.

Flame-haired actress who fingered husband for Bloomberg, Obama ricin letters arrested by FBI for plot
Rogers Guess had originally reported her husband Nathaniel Richardson to authorities after she claimed to find suspected ricin in a Tupperware container in their fridge — as well as incriminating searches for Obama and Bloomberg on her home computer.
The 33-year-old Army vet was arrested, and investigators found castor beans — used to make ricin — in Richardson’s car, but there wasn’t enough evidence to charge him.
Guess has had parts in “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Walking Dead” and told the Post last week she wanted to divorce her husband – and denied his claims that she was the one behind the letters.
