Culprit in coffee contamination remains unknown

A wealth of research suggests that coffee doesn’t just pick you up -- it fights heart disease and some cancers, and it may even help you push through harder, longer workouts.


Authorities in Anaconda say they have installed security cameras and changed the locks on doors but haven't named a suspect after someone last summer put urine in a coffee can at the Anaconda-Deer Lodge courthouse and days later spread feces on the coffee pot.
Two county employees drank the urine-tainted coffee on June 7, and feces was found on the coffee pot on June 11. A foam cup containing feces also was found in a closet.
Law enforcement officials say that workers at the state crime lab in Missoula couldn't get fingerprints off the cup, and the feces is not from a human so it wasn't tested for DNA.
Authorities say whoever contaminated the coffee could face a felony assault charge if caught.
