It is especially true when eating the food prepared by a woman. We will be discussing Masumi Hayashi who killed four people and poisoned 63 with a communal pot of curry during a summer festival

on July 25th, 1988 in the [inaudible] district of what Kiama in Japan as Summer Festival was occurring, 37 year old, my SUNY Hayashi made a communal pot of curry in placed it for participants to eat. What people didn't know was that she added at least a thousand grams of artists neck, which is enough to kill over a hundred people. 63 people suffered from acute arsenic poisoning as well as four people died, two children and two adults. They were 64 year old taka, Toshi Tawny, Naca, 53 year old to cocky Tanaka, 10 year old hero, Taka Hayashi and 16 year old Miyuki. Tori witnesses quickly pointed out my Sumi Hayashi. Her husband was an exterminator, so it was easy for her to get as much arsenic as she wanted. However, who would think that would add this to the curry when she was arrested? Tidbits of her life started to come out. My Sooni had been in insurance sales woman. It was found that she had participated in a number of insurance fraud. It was also found that she tried to kill her husband in the past, as well as attempting to kill three others. All where to get insurance money missumi clean. She was innocent, but her motive for poisoning the communal pot of curry was came out later on in the trial. It was that she was angry at her neighbors for shunning her family and her

the court found her guilty and sentenced her to death. In 2002 my assume he tried appealing, but the death sentence was upheld. On April 21st, 2009 the Supreme Court of Japan rejected her final appeal even as late as April, 2017 my Sumi Hayashi continues to appeal her death sentence in 1999 the 38 victims who were poisoned but survived sued Hayashi for 107.5 yen. In 2003 the families of three of the four victims who passed away sued her for 30 million yen. I couldn't find if any of them one their lawsuits, but in reality they all lost their loved one, so even all the money in the world couldn't bring them back. The worst part about this case is that it sprung a bunch of copycats who started poisoning all over Japan due to the infamy of Masumi Hi ashy.

Well, what did you think about this case? Do you believe that she's innocent this whole time? She continues to say that she is, but they did find the arsenic, the one that matched what was in the curry at her house. So I'm not sure is she is very innocent. I do know that her husband was also charged with the insurance fried and he was sentenced to six years. I don't think that she is going to be put to death, um, because the Japanese courts are actually looking to stop the death sentence from happening, but as long as she remains in prison, I think that everyone is safe.
