Cheyenne, Wy – A letter threatening the life of the
governor and containing a powder was opened at a Cheyenne newspaper
offices today (Thursday).
Three other similar letters, two delivered to the newspaper and
one to a local television station, were not opened.
Initial tests of the powder released at the Wyoming
Tribune-Eagle showed no dangerous chemicals but more thorough tests
were being conducted.
Ten people who were exposed to the powder at the Tribune-Eagle
were decontaminated and treated and released from United Medical
Center. None reported any ill health affects.
All the letters were similarly addressed on standard envelopes,
and contained a Wyoming postmark.
Governor Freudenthal (FREE'-dehn-thawl) says his office did not
receive any suspicious mail.
