BANGOR (BDN) — A Burlington woman has been charged in federal court with mailing threatening communications to Sen. Susan Collins’ Bangor home in October.
Suzanne E. Muscara, 37, allegedly mailed starch to Collins’ husband, Thomas Daffron, with a letter that claimed to have been coated in “ricin residue,” according to the affidavit filed in U.S. District court in Bangor.
Muscara was arrested Friday, according to information posted on the court system’s website.
”Daffron received the letter, which was addressed to him, on Oct. 15 while at the couple’s West Broadway home alone.
“The typed and unsigned letter said, ‘Good Luck to you and Susan in the next life’ and stated ‘Your wife has betrayed the people of Maine along with the American people and this will be her downfall.’”
Muscara allegedly mailed a second letter to Collins two days later that contained a white powder. That letter was intercepted Oct. 17 at the U.S. Postal Service’s sorting facility in Hampden.
