why not a Crime thread?

There's a development in the 3 Australian deaths due to poison mushrooms.

here are the characters, for my benefit at least

*Erin Patterson , the mushroom cook

*Don and Gail Patterson, died, her former in-laws

*Heather Wilkinson, died, Gail's sister

*Ian Wilkinson, Heather’s husband, in critical condition

Erin Patterson has now said she got the mushrooms from the store. She’s made a mistake now for sure, for the reasons that it’s unheard of to buy such in the normal course of things … and no other shopper, evidently, got hold of these poison mushrooms.

Murderers can really be dumb

A more sinister crime would be to plant some of the poison mushrooms in the store to be able to claim that you were just a victim as well.
You believe in an invisible god, and dismiss people who say they are trans? Really?

another murderer who never heard the advice to just not talk to the police

they abound out there ... I think the hubris to think they can get away with murder, matches well with the hubris to think you can manipulate the police in interviews

That was good. We need a, 'Thanks,' feature to eliminate the need for posts just to express our appreciation for a joke.

That tactic was used back in the 80s by a woman who poisoned her husband with cyanide laced Excedrin. She also planted some on store shelves and killed a few strangers too. This was in the wake of the Tylenol murders.

But some people might abuse the thanks feature and just thank every post they read.

Apparently, the extortion letter guy just died (I am actually surprised he was still alive until just a couple weeks ago.)
