Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for your prompt reply. State of FL. I am not a licensed caregiver or student. Just a friend that took him to all doctors appts, paid his bills for him, etc. He has given me a substantial amount of gifts, including an expensive automobile. I don't believe I am on the will anymore, nor his power of attorney. Knowing his erratic behaviors in the past, he changes his will very frequently. All I do know is that I was indeed to be left everything in his will at the time the doctors discovered this poisoning.
He has also had another friend who he would use crack with on a regular basis. I understand she has now been appointed his legal primary care giver (I was). My best guess is that she is now the sole receipient on his will. Will she be a bigger suspect?
I have been led to believe that he hadn't told the police until a few weeks ago.
I actually met him through the AA fellowship (I have been sober 4+ years). People around those rooms are already talking about it. Do you advise that I not attend meetings in this area anymore?
What do I tell family members? Nothing? They all know something is going on.
Will this investigation be "sped up" once he actually dies? Is cyanide found in street drugs?
