Just one week after the devastating 9/11 attacks, an act of domestic terrorism further shook the United States. Letters laced with powdered anthrax were sent to various locations throughout the country, leading to five deaths and seventeen hospitalizations. The anthrax attacks disrupted the US postal system, closed down important media and government buildings, and sparked another large-scale terrorism investigation. 

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss The Anthrax Murders. The large-scale investigation eventually led authorities to a microbiologist who helping them to find the killer. Dr. Bruce Ivins had even been educating FBI agents on Anthrax in the wake of the letters. Ivins had some skeletons in his closet. But, as he realized that the authorities were closing in on him, he made the decision that he was not going to trial.
