"A teenage Japanese girl who gradually poisoned her mother into a coma while keeping a blog about her worsening health will be sent for treatment in a reformatory, a court official said today. Investigators searching the girl's room after her arrest found animal parts preserved in formaldehyde along with a copy of a book about Graham Young, a British serial killer convicted of poisoning dozens of people in the 1960s and 1970s, newspapers said".
"The daughter, a bright chemistry student, idolised Young, reports said".
"The girl obtained the thallium from a local drugstore by saying she intended to use it in a school chemistry experiment, media reports said. She also appears to have poisoned herself in an effort to evade suspicion, newspapers said".
Classic case of someone who is really blogging mad. I really hope she didn't do it just so that she would have something to write about in her blog. Click on the title link for the full article on SMH.
