The lowest thing I've ever heard of.

Saw this and wondered just how low people can go.

Thallium has been used by many countries for political assassinations, virtually untraceable, may take years of painful suffering before death. A friend of mine was killed that way.

Prefer not to, point being it's not new and not uncommon, and because thallium is only traceable by lab tests of hair and nail clippings indicating the absence of things that should be there, making it "appropriate" for political purposes or getting rid of people who "get in the way".
