Five Years, Few Clues

Today is the fifth anniversary of the death of photographer Bob Stevens, left, who was the first to die in a series of anthrax letter attacks that happened around the time of 9/11. Stevens was Photo Editor of the tabloid The Sun, owned by American Media. An autopsy after his death that determined what killed him probably saved the life of a co-worker who was also infected.

Despite many thousands of interviews and subpoenas and more than 60 searches executed, the FBI has not been able to bring charges in any of the anthrax cases. The FBI says the investigation is continuing. Stevens' widow is suing the government for lax security at its bioweapons labs. The former offices of The Sun remain sealed.
