Summary:

A scientist who years later would commit suicide while the focus of the investigation into the 2001 anthrax attacks could not remember if he re-tested after cleaning possible anthrax contamination at Ft. Detrick, according to documents obtained using FOIA. Another expert questioned the scientist's inability to recall and the episode "should have raised questions about his veracity and his intentions, according to some of those familiar with the investigation," the Los Angeles Times reported.
