"What kind of idiot tries to put a bitter medication like Trazadone into a tuna sandwich?" I demanded of my husband. "She had to know he'd taste it right away."As he didn't answer right away, I looked over. He appeared to be sneaking out of the room.

Interesting as to there being so many dumb ways people have tried to poison others. Thank goodness for stupid people in the cases where they didn't succeed. A most unusual topic I must say :-).

Poisoning is always fascinating to mystery buffs. There's an anthology of short stories called "Handbook for Poisoners" edited by Raymond T. Bond which, besides the stories, has a running commentary on what constitutes a poison. And then, dumb criminals are always good for a laugh.

Noted....with horror. I don't know if these people are "stupid," or mentally ill...or just plain evil.
