Olympia man who sent his severed finger to the IRS last year now accused of mailing fake bomb
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — An Olympia man who authorities say mailed one of his fingers to the IRS last year is now facing federal charges for allegedly mailing a fake bomb to the agency. Normand Lariviere, 68, of Olympia, was charged with mailing a threat to injure after IRS workers in Ogden, Utah, discovered a package containing what appeared to be a pipe bomb on July 6. A robot had to be used to determine the 'bomb' was fake. The return address on the envelope was Lariviere's.
