Shannon Richardson, an actress who had bit-parts in The Walking Dead and Vampire Diaries, has been arrested by the FBI for allegedly sending threatening letters with a sprinkle of ricin to both Barack Obama and mayor of New York Mike Bloomberg.
Her letter to Bloomberg read, in part: “You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns. 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.”
The funny part of the story, for me, is that Richardson actually called the FBI herself in an attempt to frame her husband, Nathanial Richardson, for sending the letters.
Shannon hails from Texas and is pregnant with her fifth child (I’m not sure if she counts her gun amongst them). Nathanial is her fourth husband, though probably not for much longer. Anyone up for being the fifth?
