N.H. girl’s body found in river

WASHINGTON - The FBI investigated more threats against the life of the late Edward M. Kennedy than previously revealed, according to records released yesterday that vividly chronicle how the longtime Massachusetts senator became a magnet for the anger of disgruntled people around the world.

None of the half-dozen or so newly revealed threats, from the overheard mutterings of a purported mobster to a mysterious call detailing a supposed plot by Cuban communists, were substantiated. But they show how protecting Kennedy became a full-time job for FBI and Secret Service agents.

The batch of records released yesterday - covering from the mid-1960s through 2001 - was the second since the Federal Bureau of Investigation last year declassified portions of its voluminous file on Kennedy.
