During a sleepover, two children in the home ate the cereal, and subsequently required hospitalization.

Keep in mind that Uncle Touchy has unbeatable babysitting rates, but it's still ill-advised.

Investigators say they identified the controlled substance through an autopsy, but have not said what substance was used.

Is this normal procedure? This sounds super weird to me.

A controlled substance from his work.

This is super sketchy.

If he worked for a pest control company, then it was strychnine or warfarin or something stronger.  If he worked for a pharmaceutical company or a drug store, then lord knows what he used.

Tangentially related CSB: My girlfriend and I, she's not Canadian and you might know her, were hanging out at a bar last week. Anyway, this guy in a suit approached us, offering 2 single gummy bears in 2-2oz plastic portion cups.

It seemed legit. Quite legit, indeed. Who doesn't wonder around in a suit in 100 degree Fahrenheit weather with single gummy bears in 2oz portion cups?

Possibly. There are a lot of chemicals I work with every day that can kill you dead, but most people don't know it.

There is no way this wasn't added to the cereal on purpose to kill the children. I work with guys who will handle stuff all day long that will kill you dead while eating and rarely wash their hands or wear gloves.

This dude is sick and deserves the worst.

Police say the family and the accused are "known to each other."

That's strange. Don't most people get complete and total strangers to look after their 3 year old children?

OK, but like ... why wouldn't they say what the substance was? Now I'm sitting here what it was and why they won't tell the public. It looks really shady and I can't see how this is the better course of action.

Honestly? The kids are safer with total strangers. Kids are much more likely to be abused by someone they know and trust.

After "Forensic Files" became a big hit on TV, there was a big rash of people using a) ethelyne glycol and b) succinylcholine to murder people with. So they stopped letting everyone know about the exotic but common chemicals you can kill people with.

I think it's a good idea, myself.

What's a good idea? Ethylene glycol or succinycholine?

Guy works at pharmacy, steals some powdered fentanyl to sell for extra cash, brings it home in a baggy. Kids find it, think it's sugar, put it into cereal. Bad Things Ensue.

Also, this is Canada, the courts don't feed the murder porn industry. If there's no public safety interest, the detailed mechanics of how someone was murdered is none of your business.

I daresay the nature of that relationship has irrevocably changed and, should the family get their hands on the accused, may change again in the near future.

FTA: Police say they are still investigating whether the incident was intentional or accidental.

Let me save you some trouble, Officer Crackerjack.

Did Ngugi intend to put the foreign substance in the breakfast cereal?
Yes?
Then, there is intent.

Did Ngugi's intentional action (placing a foreign substance in breakfast cereal) result in harm to another person?
Yes?
Then, you have intent to harm, at a minimum.

obviously it's a on the shelf substance or a flower (et cetera) that is easy to come by but authorities don't want to publicize this info to the masses.

many times on True Crime TV they skip over the name of a medicine or substance that is easily acquired but deadly when misused.

Not what happened.
I've been following this since the first girl was hospitalized.
Mom made the girls a cooked cereal for breakfast. The other kid got sick, racism played into her going to the wrong hospital, poor treatment, then the girl whose mom fed them got sick, straight to the children's hospital. Her kid lived, the other kid died.

No one knew what happened, lots of speculation because the cereal was imported.

I'm actually happy they figured this out, because that poor women thought she killed her daughter's best friend, but now she knows, it wasn't her fault.
