    I was just reading about this in the Daily Mail. I wonder what the motive was. Strange.

    I could never kill anyone, but it seems that poisoning is the most painful way for someone to die. Can't imagine inflicting that kind of harm in anyone.

    The details are strange because this young woman was very close to the family and her employer. Apparently, it only took one dose to poison the doctor. But why would she do that?

    23-year-old accused of poisoning CNY boss mourned her death online: 'I'm devastated'

    I was lost in the personal angle and disregarded the charges, but I think you're right. Thank You.

    I hope we'll be able to follow the details of this case. It sounds premeditated. Shocking, if she did this to cover up some other lesser crimes.

    Was it to cover up what she had already done financially?

    Well, shoot, that blew my theory. I figured it was an inheritance thing - attach oneself to the son of well-to-do parents, knock off the parents...

    The relationship was apparently "on" enough for her to be included in Mary's obit.

    I would bet she "cooked" the order for the colchicine. That is a medicine available through doctor's orders and a pharmacy only in the US. But Canada, Mexico, or online? And maybe get the victim to unknowingly pay for it?

    Speculation -- I'm guessing she tampered with the business records and forged checks, then decided if and when she was caught she'd use the drug on her employer/boyfriend's mother. She ordered the drug months before and she was still working there, so she wasn't caught yet, then her boss found out and was going to tell the whole family or call the police. Such drastic measures though? And she tries to frame the son!

    I wonder if she meant to actually kill her employer or just drug her into sickness and confusion, but gave her too high a dose. It's hard to believe this young woman who got such good grades in school and was close to the family and business could be so cold-hearted.

    Sounds like a particularly painful death.

    Unfortunately, good grades are unrelated to morals and character, as are good looks.

    Here's what she wrote the day after poisoning the woman who was her employer and boyfriend's mother. The family included her in the obituary!
