FBI releases documents on Bruce Ivins

The FBI has made public thousands of pages of police reports, emails and other files about Bruce Ivins, the alleged culprit of the 2001 anthrax mailings.

The documents, as a whole, show a troubled man who battled strange obsessions, including secretly cross-dressing and obsessions with bondage, blindfolding and the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority.

Ivins' sorority obsession, an interview reveals, stem from the early 1960s when he asked a member of the sorority at the University of Cincinnati out and was turned down.

"Ivins soon became obsessed with all aspects of that sorority," the FBI report said.

Ivins' obsession eventually led him to break into a KKG sorority house sometime between 1976 and 1978 on the campus of the University of Norths Carolina to steal their "ritual material" and the "cypher" device to decode it.

An additional break in at a KKG house at West Virginia University was also revealed by Ivins. That break in, several years after the UNC event, was to steal similar materials, which he said he mailed back after copying.

Ivins also disclosed an obsession with blindfolding and bondage in a November 2007 interview, going so far as to keep a P.O. Box in Frederick, Md., in the early 1990s to receive "literature" on the topic.

Ivins also said that he corresponded with an unnamed individual about bondage and blindfolding, exchanging photos of bound and blindfolded women.
