KIRO-TV 7 News in Seattle reports:
“A Yelm couple found dead in their home Monday [May 9] committed suicide by consuming a cocktail of chemicals, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office said Friday [May 13].
‘This is the first chemical suicide that we’ve encountered,’ said Lt. Greg Elwin with the Sheriff’s Office.
The chemicals sickened deputies who first responded to the scene and entered the house to investigate.
‘The mixture that goes into these suicide cocktails is clearly fatal and certainly hazardous to first responders,’ Elwin said.
‘These suicide cocktails’ was apparently a reference to the fact that they’re not uncommon. KIRO 7 South Sound Bureau Chief Richard Thompson found reports of cases across the country and worldwide.”
