To be sure, I'm not fixated on a long-delayed death. My primary goal is to avoid suspicion or be beyond the reach of hard evidence.
A snapshot of my wife's behavior certainly allows for other ways she could expire with little suspicion, if not simpler means. Here's a bit of her routine:
- Drinks home brewed tea or coffee daily.
- Known to poorly manage stress.
- Smokes weed regularly, along with cigarettes and alcohol (on occasion).
- Flies domestically about 5-8 times a year for work.
- Monthly road trips to an isolated location, through a dead cell zone.
- Known to manage stress poorly
This holiday season will be understandably rough on her (both of us). With our divorce progressing and court dates fast approaching, this could also be a good time to execute a nearer term plan.
With the above information, my alternative to mercury poisoning was hemlock or aconite. Procurement would be via a darknet market, or - with luck - a stroll through a nearby botanical garden or state park. I figured her tea bags would be the best vector; I'd insert tiny shavings or soak the bags in a solution (allowing them to dry, of course). The closer it looks like a heart attack, the better.
Any (other) ideas?
