It was an ordinary day at the Coroner's office for Mark Workentin, when he made an unusual discovery in one of the female corpses. He had been told that the patient had suffered from nausea, and severe convulsions prior to her passing. He decided to get to get a professional opinion from the nurse.
Nurse Haffie, I need your opinion on this patient
Ms. Elizabeth Eden Harris seems to have suffered from cyanide poisoning
But how could she have ingested so much?
Don't apple seeds have trace amounts of cyanide?
I investigated by examining the contents of her stomach and found a copious amount of apple seeds
Correct! The unsettling fact is that for a woman of her size, you'd need three-quarters of a cup of seeds to kill her...
