Portland's White Powder Problem

Posted by Alex Zielinski on Tue, May 15, 2012 at 12:29 PM

Since April 26, at least six different locations across Portland have been hit with mysterious envelopes filled with equally mysterious white powder. Some envelopes are straight-up labeled "Anthrax." So far, none of them contain the toxic powder.

The most recent delivery was found this morning at Infinity Tattoo. The rest of them: Market Center Building, Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse, Lloyd Center, Port of Portland Headquarters, and the downtown Hilton Hotel. Here's a handy map I made highlighting all of the places the powder has popped up. I tried to connect the dots to make some sort of cryptic message or symbol, but all I came up with was a crippled starfish. What does it mean?
