WHEN CPR DOESN'T WORK . . .
« on: July 18, 2016, 04:02:17 PM »
Denny Miller was not expecting to die that night. His drug use was pretty controlled; he only used once twice a week especially on the evenings that he didn't have classes the next day until the afternoon.
Denny also trusted his drug supplier with selling him only the best possible coke his supplier could get hold of. Yeah, sure, Denny was a little bit behind on paying for his habit, but his supplier knew that he was good for it. Unfortunately for Denny, his supplier needed a "good example" of what happens when customers don't pay on time.
Denny was totally unaware that the new bag of coke that he had picked up earlier in the day had been laced with strychnine; An extremely poisonous white crystalline alkaloid, C21H22O2N2, derived from nux vomica and related plants, used as a poison for rodents and other pests and formerly as a stimulant.

When Denny poured out the white powder on his 6 x 6" mirror, cut it into lines, he had no idea it would be the last thing he ever did.

When Denny's roommate showed up several hours later and called 911 the EMTs already knew there was no hope for Denny but they felt obligated to go through the motions of trying to revive him.

They didn't succeed. 21-year-old Dennis Miller was pronounced dead at the scene.

Excellent. The information about the poison added greatly to chilling drama that was to unfold. Most effective, and the photos that followed made it look like a real crime scene.

Yes, very well written Pakman.  These kind of scenes are always great when they end with medical personnel having to admit, "There's nothing more we can do.  He's dead."  Followed by a long look at the dead kid, sometimes with the resus equipment still in place on the body, like a breathing tube or EKG pads.
