Teenage Girl Poisons Grandma’s Collard Greens for Taking her Cell Phone Away

girl who poisoned grandmaIn the news recently, I was unsurprised to learn that a girl in North Carolina dumped poison meant to exterminate termites into her grandmother’s collard greens while she was at church.

It gets worse… This all happened because grandma, one Gaylon Moody of Fayetteville (a dead ringer for Sweet Brown), confiscated her cell phone for a week.

Via CBS:

The seventeen-year-old Fayetteville girl allegedly dumped insecticide and termite killer into a pot of collard greens her grandmother planned on eating for Easter dinner. The station reports Moody cooked the food before attending church for services, and ate the meal when she returned home.

Moody and her friend Clifton Evans both became ill after eating the collard greens, reports the station.

“About an hour and a half later, we started getting sick,” Moody told the station. “My fingers started feeling numb, (and it spread to) my chest, my face, my mouth.”

A friend of Moody’s rushed the two to the hospital, where they were treated and released.

Teens of today care more about technology, and what that technology represents, than family. Not having the thinnest, fastest phone is a social tragedy, and not having a phone at all is like, so much worse than a dead grandma.

Was Brittany Murphy Poisoned? Coroner and Forensic Specialist Say NO

Brittany Murphy Uptown Girls stillThe father of Brittany Murphy – the actress who made us laugh and cry in Clueless and Girl, Interrupted – is pedaling a theory that her husband were poisoned.

It was said that Murphy and Simon Monjack, who died within months of each other in late 2009 and 2010, mysteriously died of “natural causes,” but a test ordered using a hair sample of the late star claims that an irregular amount of heavy metals used in rat poison and insecticides were in her bloodstream at the time of death.

No word on the who or why, but both the L.A. coroner and the president of the Board of Forensic Toxicology are calling the report bogus.

Coroner’s statement: “We have not seen the results and nothing has been presented to us. We stand by what we ruled on the case.”

Specialist/President of Forensic Toxicology’s words, via CNN:

“It’s ridiculous,” Dr. Bruce Goldberger said. A conclusion of poisoning is an “inflammatory statement” that “is a baseless allegation and outrageous statement to make based on a single hair test.”

Murphy’s autopsy revealed no physical signs of poisoning, he said. “A hair test alone, without any clinical signs or symptoms, cannot be used to establish poisoning.”

The private report also showed a normal level of arsenic, which would have been elevated if rat poisoning was involved, he said.

“She was a beautiful woman and likely had numerous hair treatments,” Goldberger said. “Chemicals in the hair treatment would alter the chemistry of her hair sample.”

I can’t deny that her and her husband’s deaths seem very suspicious, especially considering their ages (32 and 40) BUT I also think her dad may be [understandably] reaching for an explanation.
