The wife’s sister told police that James Toliver Craig was a serial philanderer—and had even drugged his spouse years before her death, an arrest affidavit states.
On March 13, a package arrived. Another employee had opened it, and the office manager decided to take a peek. Inside, she found “a bio-hazard sticker and what said ‘Potassium Cyanide’ on a circular canister,” the affidavit continues.
The office manager sealed up the package, and googled “potassium cyanide.” She then realized that Angela’s symptoms seemed to match those of cyanide poisoning.
A short time later, Craig called his business partner and said he had “heard some disturbing information,” asking if the other man “had said anything to the hospital staff.”
He said he knew about the package, to which Craig replied it was “a ring for Angela and that he wanted to surprise her.” The business partner told Craig he knew it wasn’t a ring, and asked why he would buy potassium cyanide, according to the affidavit.
“James eventually recanted and admitted the package contained Potassium Cyanide but claimed that Angela asked him to order it,” the affidavit continues, stating that Craig claimed to his business partner that Angela had been suicidal.
Bless the office manager!! She helped make certain he didn't get away with this!
