FBI Forgetting To Search Suspect's House & Car Could Have Been A Big Mistake

Federal agents taking a second look at the murders of seven people who swallowed tainted Tylenol capsules in 1982 have searched the home of a one-time leading suspect in the still-unsolved case.

"I was reading back through the files", stated Lt. Dudley Dorkman, "and realized that we had failed to search the suspects house and car. I realized right away that was a booboo."

So, after 26 years a search warrant was sought even though, according to Dorkman, "He's probably had time to hide any evidence."

FBI agents from Boston and Chicago were seen Wednesday removing boxes and a computer from the condominium owned by James W. Lewis, who served more than 12 years in prison for trying to extort $1 million from the painkiller's manufacturers.

Also, over 100 other people served from 2 months to 5 years for also trying to blackmail the company.

No one was ever charged with the deaths of the seven people who took cyanide-laced drugs in the Chicago area 26 years ago, leading to dramatic changes in the way food and medical products are now packaged.

James W. Lewis is still hiding after almost being beaten to death by senior citizens over trying to open pill bottles over the last 27 years.
