Anthrax Suspect Kills Himself

This is not specifically 9-11 related, although it comes up quite often from the kooks:

Ivins, employed as a civilian at Ft. Detrick, earlier had attracted the attention of Army officials because of anthrax contaminations that Ivins failed to report for five months. In sworn oral and written statements to an Army investigator, Ivins said that he had erred by keeping the episodes secret -- from December 2001 to late April 2002. He said he had swabbed and bleached more than 20 areas that he suspected were contaminated by a sloppy lab technician.

Given that he committed suicide, I have no doubt the Troofers will claim that he's a patsy and was murdered by the feds.
