    Revealed: French-born Canadian woman, 53, suspected of mailing ricin to President Trump at the White House 'had tweeted #killtrump 11 days before her arrest and sent a total of SIX letters'

    By Snejana Farberov and Lauren Edmonds For Dailymail.com Published: 12:05 EDT, 22 September 2020

    •Pascale Ferrier, 53, from Quebec, Canada, identified as suspect who allegedly mailed ricin-tainted letter to President Trump at White House

    •She is also suspected of mailing five poison-laced envelopes to law enforcement officials in Texas
    •Ferrier was said to be armed with gun and knife when she was taken into custody on Sunday on the US-Canada border
    •On Monday, Royal Canadian Mountain Police descended on an apartment complex in Montreal
    •Police in Montreal say Ferrier sent six letters in total; one to Trump and five to an address in Texas
    •Envelope sent to White House contained a letter that told Trump to 'give up and remove your application for this election'

    The woman accused of mailing envelopes containing ricin to President Donald Trump and to law enforcement in Texas has been identified as a 53-year-old French-born resident of Quebec, who also allegedly mailed threatening letters to the recipients. Pascale Ferrier, 53, a French-born resident of Quebec, has been identified as the woman suspected of mailing ricin letters to President Trump at the White House

    Court records first obtained by CBC named the suspect as Pascale Ferrier, who was arrested on Sunday by the US Customs and Border Protection on the US-Canada border near Buffalo, New York.

    According to court documents, Ferrier penned a note to Trump, telling him to 'give up and remove your application for this election'.

    The note said: 'So I made a "special gift" for you to make a decision. This gift is in this letter,' she wrote, according to the affidavit. 'If it doesn't work, I'll find better recipe for another poison, or I might use another one.'

    Authorities believe Ferrier sent a total of six letters; one to Trump and the others to people in Texas.

    Those letters 'contained similar language' to the letter that was sent to President Trump and were sent to people affiliated with facilities where Ferrier had been jailed in 2019. All the notes were signed 'FREE REBEL SPIRIT.'

    In Facebook and Twitter posts in September, Ferrier wrote '#killTrump' and used similar wording as she did in the letter, calling him an 'Ugly Clown Tyrant,' according to the document. Investigators also matched Ferrier’s fingerprints from four of the letters, the complaint said.

    One of the letters containing a white powdery substance was addressed to Hidalgo County Sheriff J.E. 'Eddie' Guerra, according to a press release from the agency. The letter was sent on September 9 from Canada. In the letter, the author clearly stated a desire to harm Sheriff Guerra and three female detention officers as they too were sent letters. The letters were intercepted at the Hidalgo County Detention Center, without incident,' the release stated.

    When she was arrested, Ferrier told Customs and Border Patrol agents that she was 'wanted by the FBI for the ricin letters,' the complaint said.

    Agents found a loaded gun in her waistband and said she was also carrying a knife. Ferrier, a native of France, became a Canadian citizen in November 2015 after living in the country for seven years. According to sources speaking to CTV News, she works as a computer programmer.

    Ferrier had been living in the US last year and was arrested in Mission, Texas, in March 2019 on a charge of tampering with a government record for using a fake driver’s license. Ferrier, a native of France living in Canada, had spent 20 days in a Texas jail last year after being charged with using a fake driver's license Just weeks after regaining her freedom in May, Ferrier was deported back to Canada for overstaying her six-month visa and committing a crime on US soil, the New York Times reported. She was said to have moved to Laval, Quebec.

    Ferrier is a computer programmer who became a citizen of Canada in November 2015. Another tweet sent from that account two minutes later dubbed the president 'the ugly tyrant clown.' The user of the Twitter page described herself as a 'techno-creative Nomad.' A Facebook page in the name of Pascale Ferrier features a post from 2015 about becoming a Canadian citizen.

    The first poison-tainted letter allegedly sent by Ferrier was intercepted earlier this week at the final offsite processing facility where mail is screened before it reaches the White House. A preliminary investigation confirmed the presence of ricin from Canada.

    The letter addressed to the White House appeared to have originated in Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have said.

    And envelopes containing ricin were also mailed to law enforcement agencies in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas, according to another law enforcement official.

    She is one ugly man. Funny she should call Trump an "ugly tyrant clown". She must have some kind of vampiric DNA so she cannot see her own reflection.

    Serious? Heck even I don’t have to look that up. Castor beans.
    Of course knowing a guy who went to prison for possessing ricin maybe the reason I recall that.

    It's made from Castor beans from which castor oil is made. Toxicity depends on how well it's refined and converted into a powder. While castor beans contain ricin, Heating during the oil extraction process denatures and deactivates the ricin.

    She’s Canadian, why does she even care about President Trump?

    I don’t care about Trudeau. He is Canada’s problem.

    I remember these growing at our house when I was growing up. We were told way back then, "" Don't eat the seeds ".



    You gotta wonder what kind of tech is going on that they were able to track him or her down. I assume she had enough smarts to try to not leave any clues lying about.

    The fact that they were able to trace it to a genome found specifically in Canada is the sobering part to me. Smartest minds in the world right there.

    It's a byproduct of castor bean processing and could easily be extracted by any home chemist - or cook for that matter...
