Dive into the Anthrax Files

The government’s allegation that former U.S. Army microbiologist Bruce E. Ivins was the 2001 anthrax killer draws on a massive cache of documents. We obtained many of them in reporting our stories about the case with partners PBS’ “Frontline” and McClatchy.

The government’s case against Bruce E. Ivins draws on a massive cache of documentary evidence to argue that he was the 2001 anthrax killer. We relied heavily on it in preparing this week’s stories about Ivins with our partners, PBS’ “Frontline” and McClatchy.

Now it’s time to share.

Thanks to ProPublica’s new DocDiver anyone can go look at the evidence firsthand, make comments and – we hope – discover new leads in case that some say remains unsolved.

So far, we’ve uploaded Ivins’emails, his multiple interviews with FBI agents, key scientific reports, and the FBI’s final “Amerithrax” case summary, among others.

We’ll be adding more in the days and weeks ahead as our reporting on the case continues.
