Walking Dead Zombie Arrested in Obama Ricin Case

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Fri, Jun 7, 2013 at 1:44 PM

A woman has been arrested in connection with the letters containing Ricin that were mailed to President Obama and NYC Mayor Bloomberg on Wednesday, May 29—aaaaaand you've probably seen her on TV!

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.

Oh, and here's what one of the letters said:

“You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns,” the message sent to Bloomberg read, according to NBC New York, which obtained a copy of the letter. “Anyone who wants to come to my house will get shot in the face. The right to bear arms is my constitutional God given right and I will exercise that right till the day I die.”

OH! And fun fact: According to her IMDB page, she also played a "crazed customer" in an American Deli commercial. HUH. THAT'S WEIRD.

Im exercisin my God-given right... until today I guess??
