Also, don't try keeping mutated animals from Antarctica: My mutated penguin/zombie has been creating havoc over here

He: HAM?
She: HAF?
Lightly as a feather? Relevant where he touched her? Any others around? Dies by accident? Murder?

Did he touch her with some other part of his body? an object? if so, was that object light as a feather?

Are any of these relevant regarding the way she dies;
poison?
asphyxiation?
shooting?
fall?
beating?
something? or someone falling on her?

Just realised one important question hasn't been asked, is 'her' and 'she' the same person?

(Hmmm, must find a list of poisons then)

Was the object sharp? did it tear the skin somehow? did he touch her in such a way she got the poison in through mouth? ear? nose? other orifice? or was the poison so strong it worked through the surface of the skin?

But yesish to edible, right? Is it usually non-toxic, just not eaten? if so, because it's not digestible for a human?

Is it ever used in cooking (even as a herb)?

Is it a root vegetable? or does it grow above ground?

Is it farmed? If so, for some other purpose than food?

Did he stroke a leaf of tobacco over her skin? no did he use something else that was drenched/infused with tobacco? see below

Damia

was she trying to quit? no - this was murder, remember_ did he soak one of those nicotine patches in nicotine so it was absorbed through her skin? not sure what you mean by soaking the patch, but yes it was absorbed through her skin

Enough for a

******** SPOILER *********

Bob the murderer put a nicotine patch on his victim's arm while she was asleep. She was allergic to nicotine and because it stayed on a while she died.

Don't believe me? Google nicotine poisoning. Years ago I took just a few chews of a nicotine gum that my husband was using when he was giving up smoking. I didn't like the taste so it stayed in my mouth for only a few seconds. The reaction I had lasted for hours. I can't remember ever feeling so bad.

If our Bob here was truly heinous he could have done this on a child and it would be even more likely that fatal poisoning would take place.

DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME


Thank you one and all.
