Hey Vampire Diaries fans.
Do you recognize the cast member Shannon Rogers Guess Richardson? Neither do we.
She makes occasional appearances on the show, but now the D-list, small screen actress has a new head shot to add to her portfolio.
Or should we say “mugshot”?
You know the ricin letters suspect out of New Boston, Texas, Nathan Richardson? Shannon is his estranged wife. Federal investigators believe she may be the one who sent those ricin letters to President Barack Obama and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Shannon is the one who contacted the FBI, pointing the finger at Nathan, saying there was a suspicious substance in their fridge and ricin-related searches on their computer.
What was first though to be anti-gun control motivated may actually be a matter of marital revenge. Shannon and Nathan are going through a divorce.
Nathan is off the hook for now, and Shannon is being held in Texarkana, Arkansas.
Looks like Shannon’s new role to play will be “jail bird”.
