Startling details are emerging out of Fannin County Tuesday night as the sheriff said a resident there ended up at an area hospital claiming to have the highly toxic poison ricin on his hands. Ricin is naturally occurring, found in the seed of certain plants, but when refined and purified can kill a fully-grown adult in the amount equal to just a few grains of table salt.
