    I went to the link and only a nanogram can be lethal? Wow…anyone he met with or any place he went, could have a few nanograms if not more.

    light – Luckily you have to breathe it or eat it for it to get you. Hard to imagine, at least for me, why the killer chose such an exotic weapon. “Random act of violence” would make more sense, unless you were trying to send a message.

    J,

    I agree. There are only so many people who can get access to this stuff and I imagine that that reduces the number of suspects greatly. It looks very suspicious, I think they wanted him to suffer. This could be a message to scare other people who oppose the government.
