Fascinated with poison from his youth, Young would poison his father, step-mother, younger sister, several classmates, and at one point even himself. He eventually killed his stepmother, and, after the 15-year-old was sent to a psychiatrist, the police were brought in. Young landed himself in a psychiatric facility for people who have committed criminal offenses and was diagnosed with a personality disorder.
Dubbed the “Teacup Poisoner,” he would kill a fellow inmate and poison several staff members before being released nine years later, deemed “fully recovered.” He would eventually land back in prison in the early 1970s to live out the rest of his days, but he would go on to poison 70 more people, ultimately killing several, before that.
Call me crazy, but I think this guy was released just a tad too soon. I mean, he even killed a fellow inmate and poisoned some of the staff.
Coffee out on the patio this morning. Where else?
