TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — North Mississippi Medical Center issued a statement Thursday about the suspect in the ricin letter case involving President Obama and U.S. Senator Roger Wicker.

It's in response to online allegations by 45-year-old Paul Kevin Curtis that he discovered body parts while working at the hospital.

NMMC says Curtis worked there from 1998 until 2000 and adds he was not fired for allegations made about the hospital.

According to the statement, the hospital is involved with harvesting organs as it is required by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services. 

NMMC says the Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency harvests the organs and takes them immediately to other hospitals for transplants.

The hospital adds it does not receive payment for the organs.
