#2 I'm still waiting for word about the ricin. It's the old, dependable drugs that really shine in these types of circumstances.
That's if the Bulgarians will share.

#3  a case that caused an international outcry and prompted the United States to push for a bill cracking down on Russian corruption.

I've got to ponder that one a little more.

#5 Blackbeard is a pretty good avatar, JohnQC. Watch out for strange ships in the waters, mate - and always post a lookout!! HAHAHA!!!

Ed - no doubt the UK police will test for ricin as a poison. What's strange here is that the victim died while jogging. You might expect that if this was some sort of poison taken by fluids or food - he would die shortly after a meal. Possibly the poison in this case was a cardiac toxin. Or maybe the poison was soaked into some of his sports equipment (or clothes) and then entered the body through the skin during his workout.

This could be a death from natural causes, of course. But if it's a murder - it's a sophisticated one. Let's watch for the autopsy results.
