Rippercast: The Whitechapel Murders Podcast
Poison and Poisoners: Linda Stratmann-The Scientific Poisoner
April 30th, 2017
Duration: 00:44:23

We are pleased to be able to bring to you presentations from the Poison and Poisoners one-day event held in London on 29 April 2017. Organized by Casebook: Classic Crime in association with Mango Books.

Linda Stratmann: The Scientific Poisoner

In the 1840s the popular image of a typical poisoner was a woman who put arsenic in her husband's food. The 1850s, however, saw a new kind of poisoner come to public attention. Male, middle class, educated,disarmingly respectable, he killed in a clever scientific fashion, often using the less common kinds of poison, and unusual ways of administration. He might even be a medical man, the very person one was supposed to trust, giving poison to his trusting victim in the guise of medicine. Linda Stratmann will describe the sensational trials that alerted the public to what appeared to be a frightening new threat. As poison trails became more complex, expert witnesses, especially the forensic toxicologist who had become courtroom stars, began to find that a day in court could both make and destroy a promising career.
