Man wanted for questioning allegedly calls newspaper
A man wanted for questioning in the case of two jars of poisoned baby food in California says he "needs a good lawyer." A man identifying himself as Charles Dewey Cage reportedly called the Orange County Register last night to deny any involvement in the incident. Police are seeking Cage for questioning after two jars of baby food were found tainted with ricin. The poison was apparently not in a lethal form and the two children who ate the food did not become ill. The man said he had "two strikes" on him and that he "did not do it." No arrests have been made and police believe the two jars found are the only ones contaminated. Police say they want to question Cage because he was "in the area at a relevant time."
