Chloroform is a colorless, sweet-smelling, dense liquid that is a powerful anesthetic, euphoriant, anxiolytic and sedative when inhaled or ingested. It can also be used to kill.

40-year-old Thomas Edwin Bartlett found that out in 1886, when he never woke to enjoy New Years Day! A lethal dose of Chloroform was found in his stomach and it was believed his young wife was responsible.

Today I tell the take of the Pimlico Mystery on the 160th episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff.
