How Chili Powder Can Kill
Dr. Rubidium, Double X Science
On the evening of Sunday, January 6th, 2-year-old Joileen G. was pronounced dead at a San Bernardino hospital. A few hours into Monday, Joileen's caregiver for that Sunday -- Amanda Sorensen -- was arrested. On Wednesday, Ms. Sorensen, who is also the girlfriend of Joileen's father, was charged with "...malice aforethought murder..." and "...assault... by means of force that to a reasonable person would be likely to produce bodily injury, resulting in the child's death."
TAGGED: poison, neurotoxins, chili peppers
