A case involving eye drop poisoning that occurred five years ago is being heard in the United States. CBS News writes about this.
On November 14, a jury found 39-year-old Jessie Kurczewski of Wisconsin guilty of poisoning her friend. According to investigators, this is how the woman dealt with her friend Lynn Hernan in October 2018.
It was Kurczewski who then contacted the police and stated that Hernan was not breathing and was unconscious. Law enforcement officers who arrived at the scene found the victim without signs of life. Experts later found tetrahydrozoline in her blood, which is part of Visine, a drug in the form of drops to relieve swelling of the eyes.
It also turned out that the suspect visited the victim daily. She later admitted that she gave her a bottle into which, instead of water, she poured six vials of eye drops. After that, the attacker stole $290 thousand from her victim.
Prosecutors said they were satisfied with the jury’s verdict and expressed their condolences to the victim’s family. The defendant will hear the final verdict on December 7.
Earlier, a Russian woman living in the United States was found guilty of poisoning an acquaintance with cheesecake and attempting to steal her identity.
