Edward Bachner of Lake in the Hills, Illinois has pleaded guilty to bizarreass and dangerous crime: amassing large quantities of the neurotoxin found in puffer fish, with intent to use it as a weapon.
Authorities say, the puffer fish poison was intended for use on his wife, for whom he bought a $20 million life insurance policy. What a sweetheart!
Our source says Tetrodotoxin (as the stuff is called) is a very lethal poison even the smallest quantities can cause respiratory paralysis within six to 24 hours. There is no known antidote to the poison.
When agents searched his home, they found 45 more vials of tetrodotoxin, along with 50 knives, AND other weapons, AND a fake CIA badge!!
WFT?? What was he planing?!?!?
