Good morning Chicago.
Forty years ago this month, seven people died in the Chicago area after ingesting Tylenol capsules filled with potassium cyanide.
Her death spawned proven packaging, federal anti-counterfeiting laws, and urban legends about tainted Halloween candy. But despite the attention the murders garnered and the worldwide panic they caused, no one was ever charged with this horrific crime.
And time is running out.
I’ve been traveling the country for the past year, examining the evidence and following new leads. We have scoured tens of thousands of public records, including some that are still classified. And we’ve interviewed more than 150 people for our new series, many of whom have never been recorded before.
In our six-part series and accompanying podcast, we present the latest – and possibly last – attempt by law enforcement to solve these crimes. Those efforts include exhuming one suspect’s body and traveling to Boston just days earlier to speak with another.
Join us as we tell the story of the Tylenol murders like no one has told it before.

A theme in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ multimillion-dollar fraud lawsuit against former President Donald Trump is that she undervalued real estate when it would save him money and overvalued real estate when it helped him get larger loans.

Cannabis consumption is currently prohibited in public places in Illinois, although the Local Cannabis Licensing Act, which was proposed in the Illinois General Assembly last year, could allow counties and municipalities to issue special event licenses.
Twice a year, during the spring and fall equinoxes, the rising and setting suns align with Chicago’s east-west street grid, creating spectacular photo opportunities as the sun is framed by the Chicago skyline. The autumnal equinox is today.
Look west just before sunset, says Michelle Nichols, Master Educator for the Adler Planetarium. The effect is visible about a week before and after the equinox. And if you miss it, wait another six months for the next one.
Paul Sullivan writes: “A large media contingent turned out on Tuesday for what was billed as a crucial match, but only one television station turned up for Miguel Cairo’s Wednesday pre-match press conference, where the caretaker manager praised the team because he “played his ass” he would have. the night before.”
Cairo again berated themselves for not making the right decisions, admitting that “it was a tough night because you want to question yourself”. … It’s commendable that Cairo is withstanding the heat, but this loss went squarely on the players, who were able to avoid much of the blame throughout the season by focusing on manager Tony La Russa.”
Andrew Dominik’s “Blonde,” out Sept. 28 on Netflix, is said to be a hard, endured habit examined more than a hard, often miserable life, writes Michael Phillips.
