There's now more evidence to confirm that the powder found in a senate office this week does contain a deadly poison.

Results of genetic testing by the Centers for Disease Control and prevention show the presence of ricin in the powder.

Three Senate office buildings remain closed as investigators examine mail. So far, they haven't found a specific letter they could link to the powder.
