*You can’t make this stuff up.
A woman who played one of the “walkers” on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has pleaded guilty to sending ricin-laced letters to President Barack Obama and outgoing New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Shannon Rogers Richardson (pictured above, left on “The Walking Dead”) was arrested in June for allegedly sending three poisoned notes to Obama, Bloomberg and his colleague Mark Glaze, threatening harm if they continued to push for tougher gun control laws.
The actress, who also appeared on the CW’s “Vampire Diaries,” originally tried to pin the blame on her estranged husband, Nathaniel Richardson, who filed for divorce in June. But she has now taken responsibility for the crimes.
Richardson entered the guilty plea on Tuesday (Dec. 10) in Texarkana, Texas.
