Former Carnegie Mellon University art professor Steven Kurtz [see "Curtailing Kurtz," June 23] who was arrested and investigated after an ambulance crew responding to the death of his wife noticed the biological materials he uses for his art, was charged on June 29 with "petty larceny," according to a release from Kurtz's lawyer, Paul Cambria. He had been under suspicion for bioterrorism by the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force. The charges stem from the manner in which the biological material -- called harmless by those involved in Kurtz's art projects -- was obtained.
