WASHINGTON, D.C. -

The FBI says suspicious letters sent to President Barack Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker are related.

It says a substance in both letters has preliminarily tested positive for ricin, a potentially fatal poison. Both are postmarked out of Memphis, Tenn., dated April 8.

The letters were intercepted at off-site mail facilities. The FBI says it is pursuing investigative leads to determine who sent the letters.
