Girl Poisons Stepbrother, Man Tries to Poison Pizza Customers
A woman in Oak Grove, Kentucky, came across something alarming while checking her 12-year-old daughter’s Skype messages. The girl was reportedly talking to a man in Texas about her plans to poison her 4-year-old stepbrother with Mr. Clean to “get rid of him.” According to authorities, the boy had recently fallen ill.
The mother called police and confronted her daughter after finding the messages, at which point, the girl admitted she tried to poison her stepbrother, according to Christian County deputies. Officers said the girl, who hasn’t been identified because of her age, put Mr. Clean in the boy’s water and forced him drink it because she believed her mother loved her stepbrother more and the child was getting on her nerves.
The boy is alive, but may have suffered internal injuries from the poisoning, deputies said.
The girl has been charged with attempted murder and was taken to a facility for evaluation.
Last month in North Carolina, an employee was accused of putting rat poison in a Fayetteville restaurant’s food. Fortunately, an alert manager intervened and the cheese wasn’t served to customers.
Ricky Lee Adami (above), 55, of the 3100 block of Imperial Drive in Fayetteville, was working at Primo Pizza located at 2810 Raeford Road. On Wednesday, June 6, Adami was arrested and charged with distributing food “containing noxious or deleterious material.”
In a news release, police revealed that a manager at the restaurant was preparing a pizza when he noticed an unknown substance mixed in with the shredded cheese. The manager stopped making the pizza and reviewed surveillance footage to ascertain which employee shredded that particular batch of cheese. He saw Adami putting what is believed to have been rat poison in the cheese shredding machine. The manager said Adami was acting strangely prior to contaminating the cheese. All the contaminated cheese was collected and none was served to customers, police advised.
Adami was arrested and booked into the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $100,000 secured bond.
Public records reveal Adami was previously convicted of burning a public building, multiple DWIs, multiple B&Es and larceny in the 1980s and 90s.
