Description Image of envelope in which the letter containing Anthrax was sent to Senator en:Tom Daschle during the en:2001 anthrax attacks.

The return address given in the top left says: "4th Grade, Greendale School, Franklin Park, New Jersey, 08852." There is no Greendale School at that address, though there is a Greenbrook School in the locality.

Tests conducted at en:USAMRIID confirmed the presence of fine, "energetic", powdered anthrax within this prestamped 34 cent transmittal envelope. Also present was a one page handwritten letter, clues from which enabled the en:FBI to create a profile of the sender.

The letter was postmarked at the Hamilton Township postal facility at 5:45 p.m. on en:October 9 en:2001. By October 11 it had reached the Brentwood postal facility in Washington which processes US Government mail. Two postal workers, Joseph Curseen Jr. and Thomas Morris Jr., died after contracting inhalational anthrax at the Brentwood facility. The 14 000 square foot facility was decontaminated on en:December 14, en:2002 using en:chlorine dioxide gas. When it was reopened 26 months after the incident the facility was renamed the "Joseph Curseen Junior and Thomas Morris Junior Processing Distribution Center."
