An Elvis impersonator has been arrested for allegedly sending a letter laced with poison to US President Barack Obama.

Paul Kevin Curtis is due in court in Oxford, Mississippi today (April 18) and could face up to 15 years in jail for posting ricin to the White House as well as to two other government officials.

The FBI – via the Washington Post - revealed that Curtis allegedly posted three letters on yellow paper apparently laced with ricin to Obama, Senator Roger Wicker and also to a judge in Tupelo, Mississippi – the place of Elvis' birth.

The letters concerned a conspiracy theory relating to the trafficking of human body parts. They read:

"No one wanted to listen to me before. There are still 'Missing Pieces' Maybe I have your attention now Even if that means someone must die... I am KC and I approve this message."

As well as performing regularly as Elvis Presley, Curtis also appeared at parties and events as Prince, Buddy Holly and Kid Rock.
