Strange she should leave out the most interesting poisoning homicide in recent history, that of Alexander Litvinenko, in which the victim was not only condemned to "live in interesting times", but to die in an especially interesting way. The docs didn't figure out what was wrong with him until a few days before he died. But, once they did, Scotland Yard traced the radioactive trail all across Europe and back to the capital of the Evil Empire.


Those poisoners weren't dumb.

Makes you wonder how many poisoners do get away with it.
