Hah. The last time I saw one of those was in a TV show about some guy poisoning his wife with selenium (IIRC). Something about how no one noticed the poisoning until one of the techs had the hood up on that baby while doing some routine (?) autopsy work and said it STANK.

/Maybe it was cyanide, I forget

Canadian Justice system: The man was suffering from heavy metal poisoning that affected his cognitive abilities. He was not responsible for his actions, and is no longer a danger to society. Thus he should be released.

If this happened in Texas: The man was suffering from heavy metal poisoning that affected his cognitive abilities. He was not responsible for his actions, and is no longer a danger to society. Thus he should be executed.

A "House" episode featured a woman poisoning her husband with some sort of gold compound. Heavy metals are pretty much bad news across the board.

Sok tried to melt lead belts he and his wife had used in hopes of increasing their chances of pregnancy

Some great Third World science right there...

I dunno, he's dangerously stupid, I'd rather we go the Texas route.

Subby, that headline was both garbled and horrifying. He strangled her, not poured melted lead in her.

GentlemanJ: He strangled her, not poured melted lead in her.


Although the headline is unnecessarily convoluted, it doesn't suggest that he poured lead into her.

"Man who melted lead to impregnate wife..."

How does that NOT imply he poured molten lead into her nether area?

When the article says he bought the lead belts to help impregnate his wife, did you also assume he shoved the belts in there?
