FL - LSD-tainted Walmart steak mystery unsolved
Tampa police close LSD investigation with no answers about tainted meat (tampabay.com)
Before Elyana Serrano threw up, her sister Rayna was laughing and trying to grab colors out of the air. When Ronnie Morales looked at his hand, he saw several other hands jutting from his wrist. His pregnant girlfriend, Jessica Rosado, couldn't feel her fingers or toes.
Doctors at St. Joseph's Hospital suspected the family of four had been poisoned when they all showed up there in March. They summoned Tampa police, who tested cuts of steak the family had for lunch. The results showed it was tainted with LSD.
As the case drew international headlines, detectives went to work trying to figure out how the hallucinogenic drug had found its way into the beef.
Eight months later, they still have no answers. Their efforts are chronicled in a police report that was released last week after the case was deemed inactive.
"It is a mystery," said police spokeswoman Andrea Davis. "And it will probably always remain a mystery."

I don't want to assume they overlooked the obvious, but the article doesn't say if the wheat wraps, onions or seasoning were tested. Since they were staying in a rental, I would be curious if they brought that seasoning themselves or if it was something that was in the rental. Regardless, that's pretty scary!The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.--Albert Einstein
