  A 26 year old man notes a dark red-black encrusted area on his right arm. This is at the site of removal of a tick a couple of days before. He then develops a widespread hemorrhagic skin rash over the next few days. The rash involves trunk and extremities, and even his palms and soles. Then, small 0.2 to 0.4 cm foci of skin necrosis develop on his fingers and toes. He then develops a non-productive cough. Which of the following infectious agents is most likely to produce these findings:

A Francisella tularensis

B Borrelia burgdorferi

C Bacillus anthracis

D Bartonella henselae

E Rickettsia rickettsii
