More from the AP:
A Dutch prosecutor has told The Associated Press that preliminary tests show that a container from which a Croat war criminal drank shortly before dying contained a deadly chemical.
Prosecutor Marilyn Fikenscher said in a telephone interview Thursday that, “there was a preliminary test of the substance in the container and all I can say for now is that there was a chemical substance in that container that can cause death.”
Hold. The. Phone. The thing that killed the guy was deadly? We are shocked — just shocked!
Bombshell revelation, guys. https://t.co/CqVpAG6vRV

Well, that would explain the dying part.

Maybe that's why it killed him? Because it was deadly? https://t.co/VzdXIyCKgJ

I knew it immediately from the way he died after drinking from it

What clued them in? The fact he died?
