Personally ... I think the Underpants Gnomes got 'im. They're sneaky
little buggers ... always up to something ... C'mon folks ... have these
chuckle-monkeys gotten a real live HP professional to look into it yet?
Until they do, I lend absolutely zero credibility to the whole nuclear
slant on the issue.

Since it's always fun to conject. What if the thallium, radioactive or
stable, is a false lead, clearly no residual radioactivity associated
with such a quantity of radiation has been detected, and should have
Have not heard about any chromosomal analyses, which would strongly
support radiation damage.
But what if he was externally radiated to a lethal dose, on the order of
10 or much more Gray (air kerma), (~1000 + R for my US brethren). A
possible scenario. Such a dose can be delivered in significant fractions
of an hour with credible quantities of a commonly available source.
How can you rule against this? Short of a telltale chemical or
biological signature, if there is chromosal damage tyical of a high
radiation dose, extermal irradiation would be plausible.
Anyway- hope everyone is enjoying US Thanksgiving holiday.
