Elvis Impersonator Leaves Barack Obama All Shook Up After Sending Poisoned Letter

Written by Marc Zanotti on April 19, 2013

Elvis impersonator Paul Kevin Curtis has been arrested for allegedly mailing President Obama a poison laced letter. Curtis is also suspected of sending letters containing traces of ricin to Senator Roger Wicker and a judge in Tupelo, Mississippi, the birthplace of Elvis Presley.

Curtis, who also comes from Mississippi, has been charged with threatening the two officials and the president. If found guilty the 45-year-old impersonator could be doing the jailhouse rock for up to 15 years.

As reported by the Washington Post, Curtis appeared in a federal courtroom, following his arrest, in a Johnny Cash t-shirt and did not enter a plea though his lawyer said Curtis maintains his innocence.

The 3 identical poisoned letters are signed off with the initials ‘KC’, which may stand for Kevin Curtis. The letters read of a conspiracy theory concerning the trafficking of human body parts, which KC sought to expose:

“No one wanted to listen to me before. There are still ‘Missing Pieces’ Maybe I have your attention now Even if that means someone must die…. I am KC and I approve this message.”

Suspicious minds, indeed. “I am KC and I approve this message” is Curtis’ typical sign off on his various social media postings.

Curtis has been impersonating The King since 1982 but that’s not the only musical persona versatile incarcerated performer takes on. Prince, Bon Jovi, Buddy Holly and Kid Rock are all part of his repertoire.

The multifaceted talent also claims to a Guinness world record holder and a Mensa member and, in an online profile, describes himself as a “Father/Activist/Singer/Songwriter/Business Owner/Rebel.” In 2007, Curtis’ ex-wife told police that her then husband was “extremely delusional, anti-government, and felt the government was spying on him with drones”.
