It’s a disturbing combination of greed, hatred, and narcissism I think.

She probably hated her husband, didn’t want to deal with the risks (getting half assets, or less) and time involved in divorce, and was cocky and thought she could get away with it and deserved the inheritance+insurance that awaited her.

Life in prison didn’t even occur to her probably, since she was full of herself and thought she could get away with and deserved to get away with it. These messed up people think consequences and mistakes don’t apply to them.

I remember the one where the guy put cyanide in the water cooler at his estranged girlfriends workplace and the first person to drink it (who had nothing to do with any of it) was dead within 2 minutes after taking just one sip and spitting it out.

That would be so scary to be at work taking a drink then dead within 100 seconds or so...

u/Salt_Air07 Aug 09 '22

I had to pause that one, because of how scary it was. Imagine being the third person who took a sip and spit it out, then watching the first person who drank it die in the bathroom stall. Oh my goodness that one was SO scary.

Just as bad as three of the victims of the poised Tylenol bottles:

a 27-year-old postal worker named Adam Janus of Arlington Heights, Illinois, died of what was initially thought to be a massive heart attack but turned out to be cyanide poisoning as well. His brother and sister-in-law, Stanley, 25, and Theresa, 19, of Lisle, Illinois, rushed to his home to console their loved ones. Both experienced throbbing headaches, a not uncommon response to a death in the family and each took a Tylenol extra-strength capsule or two from the same bottle Adam had used earlier in the day. Stanley died that very day and Theresa died two days later.

u/Saith_Cassus Aug 09 '22

But that’s assuming that anyone actually bothers to investigate. If a dude dies after being sick and their spouse says “it was his time,” how likely are most counties to investigate for evidence of poisoning? Forensic Files is, by definition, only going to go over cases where the killer didn’t get away with it. In all the cases where there was no reason to suspect that they should investigate further, or where the corpse was too badly decomposed for further tests by the time someone thought to check, the killer got away with it.

82

u/Salt_Air07 Aug 09 '22

Sometimes, they get away with it for years. Then, they try to get away with it again. Many of the women who kill their husbands on Forensic Files are only caught after husband number two or three also dies under “mysterious circumstances”.

She survived, one day she put just a little too much in the coffee and I was there to witness all hell break loose. It was fucking wild.

The exact cause of Crohn's disease isn't known, but it seems to be from a combination of environmental, hereditary and immune responses.

Most people are diagnosed in their teens to 20s. One of the main ways to manage Crohn's is through diet. Damage by Chron's disease is accumulative. So it's easily possible that the windex was either triggered the illness, or severely aggravated an early not yet diagnosed case.

ETA, I completely overstated the importance of diet. I still think it’s likely regular consumption of windex can trigger crohn’s , or severely aggravate an existing case.

After one year of treatment, those on dialysis have a 15-20% mortality rate, with a 5-year survival rate of under 50%. Persons who receive transplants have a survival rate of about 80% after 5 years.

As someone who's wife has been on Dialysis twice (3 years total), and has had two kidney transplants, these numbers do not look accurate at ALL.

Yes, eye drops contain tetrahydrozoline which is Extremely toxic in small amounts. Eye flushing solution is usually just saline but any eye drops claiming to remove redness will most likely be toxic.

...any eye drops claiming to remove redness will most likely be toxic.

The industry is working hard to fix that, too.

I'm currently part of an eye research study using eyedrops not containing tetrahydrozoline.

As people become more concerned with what we are putting into and onto our bodies, manufacturers are working harder to make stuff less toxic.

Miraculously, nothing was wrong where he couldn't function or anything he just had lost some long term memories. I was his friend for 3 years and he didn't remember who I was. It was really weird. But since he was still himself we re-friended. And also it burned his esophagus badly.

Man. Imagine losing your memory, and the thing all the people you have no memory of are telling you is that you just tried to kill yourself.

Dude I bet, I used some of that shit this weekend on my old roommates restroom and it started burning my hand when I got some on me. The first thing I said was “damn that would fuck you up if you drank it!”

My best friend was poisoned by his wife. He survived, and had no actual proof, but he was fucked up for a couple of years, and died about five years later, under suspicious circumstances. She was wanting out of the marriage, and filed for divorce shortly after he told me he'd been poisoned.

I can't imagine the amount of betrayal one would feel, knowing your spouse not only wants you dead, but is willing to take steps to ensure it.

u/Hefty_bag_dumps Aug 09 '22

Psychopath did that to me. I had a mental breakdown because of how much I trusted the person once I realized they were trying to kill me. I went to the doctors thirty times over a year with unexplained sickness like shitting blood, insane headaches, and high blood pressure of 220 / 120. I couldn't figure it out neither could doctor's.

Then I realized someone close to me started feeding me coffees everyday and would become enraged if I didn't drink them.

I had no proof because they brought them in from outside but they always had visine on them.

I'm still seeing if I can get a lawyer because they did other things I have proof of.

But now my body feels like it's failing and I can't figure out why.

I recently went to the baby doctor with my wife, she mentioned one of her symptoms was cooking and then not wanting to eat what she cooked(preggers side affect) the doctor jumps in and said “ I had the same thing, my ex husband use to tell me if I was poisoning him” I responded to him, if I wanted you dead, I’d just shoot you.

I lol’d at this joke

u/deef4tw Aug 09 '22

cooking can be exhausting which leads to less appetite. At least for me. Therefore i cook more planingfull/relaxed.

u/Jedi_Hog Aug 09 '22

For me it’s because I’m snacking the entire time I cook, tasting this, sampling that, etc… so when it’s time to eat I’m not that hungry anymore… oh well! Oftentimes I take like 1.5 hours to make tacos or spaghetti by slowly preparing it while being distracted by a bunch of other things…

u/One_stupid_guy Aug 09 '22

You also get used to the smells of the food while you’re cooking, that along with the heat of cooking was definitely enough to make me not eat all day when I worked at a restaurant.

Wild but thanks to watching forensic files, it's crazy to see how many married men/women will murder to change their lives. Whether it be infidelity or monetary value, it's usually poisoning of some sort to rid of the other. Cool thing I learned is that you can trace these type of things with a strand of hair. Your hair length/growth can show what potentially was in your system at a certain time based on the length and life of the hair strand.

As someone who studied crime it isn't that weird when you work with it all the time. MOST crime is committed between people who know each other. Stranger crimes are rare (aside from petty property crimes).

Interesting fact: Murder is the leading cause of death for pregnant women in the US. Has been for years. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-03392-8

This is a fact people really need to understand. Like the whole "it's dangerous outside because it's dark", you have a better chance of getting murdered in your own kitchen by the person you had sex with 30 minutes ago than on the street by a freaking mile.

Not 'poison' as much as a very caustic solution. It doesn't poison you as much as it gives you chemical burns (and thermal burns, if you're drinking it straight from the bottle, it's exothermic in contact with water).

the sodium hydroxide probably wasn't harming him at all, if it was not in concentrations he didn't notice when he was drinking it. And was certainly being at least partially neutralized by the lemonade.

the 10% of it that is bleach, on the other hand...

[The victim, Jack] Chen claimed Yu [the accused] and her mother Yuqin "Amy" Gu would subject him and his two children to traumatic emotional and verbal abuse in his declaration. He said that his wife would often deny the kids sleep, frequently make them cry, and call them foul names. “When Emily gets frustrated and yells at the children, she’ll commonly use a Chinese phrase that translates to ‘go die!’ She also says to the children, ‘your head has a problem’, ‘your head is sick’, ‘go fuck yourself,’ ‘fucking idiot,’ ‘stupid asshole,’ and ‘get the fuck out of my way'," said Chen.

and…

Chen added, “Emily would call me a ‘fucking asshole' and other insults. Currently, she minimizes my existence by telling the children in front of me, 'tell him' to do something without addressing me. She would have the children tell me to do menial tasks for her. Emily’s parenting, if you could call it that, revolves around yelling, insulting, verbally abusing, hitting, pushing, pulling, and being emotionally abusive.”

On Friday, August 8, Chen also submitted divorce papers. Chen had also asked for exclusive custody of their kids.

Sounds like Chen is finally making a decision for the sake of his children and himself.

Most importantly, our children need to know that they can have a happy and healthy relationship with me without fear or retaliation from their mother or grandmother," he added.

Apparently it doesn’t taste that bad it just smells really caustic. If you can mask the smell it’s hard to detect as long as there isn’t enough draino in it to make your tongue burn. I’m assuming the acidity of the lemonade covered it really well.
