The Teacup Poisoner: Graham Young

In Episode 347

Most of us have some compulsions or obsessions.  But what if your compulsion was to poison people?  Then you would be well on your way to becoming a killer.  As a child, Graham Young began experimenting with poisons.  By the age of 14, he was using his family as subjects. His father, step-mother, and sister suffered from episodes of excruciating stomach pain, vomiting, and diarrhea. Then, while Graham was still a teenager, his stepmother died from one of his poisoning experiments.

Graham would ultimately confess to the murder of his stepmother and the attempted murder of other family members. He was admitted to a psychiatric hospital for several years until he was determined to be rehabilitated. What his doctors didn’t know was that Graham had spent much of his time in the hospital reading medical texts to improve his knowledge of various poisons. He had honed his skills to include extracting poisons from plants on the hospital grounds.  His step-mother’s murder was just the beginning of his career as a deviant killer.

Join us at the quiet end for The Teacup Poisoner. Graham Young’s crimes were reprehensible, causing prolonged and miserable deaths for his victims.  But Graham was nothing if not detail-oriented.  A diary would be discovered in his home, noting dosages and the effects of each poison.
