Who are you and what's your source and authority?
This reads as nothing but your opinion.
Actually not, but since it's a female, we all know you aren't a bit
interested in whether or not females are unfairly convicted.

In the case of California vs Cynthia Sommer:
On February 18, 2002 , Cindy Sommer's husband, Sgt. Todd Sommer, USMC,
died following a brief illness. Cause of death listed on autopsy was
cardiac arrhythmia, etiology unknown. His heart was later labeled
"morphologically normal", which is quite plausible in the presence of
NCIS launched an investigation into his death in May of 2003. Cindy
was arrested for murder in November 2005.
Despite: claims by investigators that the tape recorder used in the
initial interview with Cindy "broke" and they reconstructed the
interview from memory; babysitter testimony that conflicts with that
of first responders and telephone records; and countless lab
discrepancies including breaks in chain of custody, no Standard
Operating Procedures (SOP's), no quality controls, and defense expert
testimony that the results of the AFIP heavy metals testing were
inconsistent with arsenic poisoning; Cindy Sommer was found guilty in
January 2007 of murder by arsenic poisoning for financial gain.
The scientific evidence does not support death by arsenic poisoning.
There is no evidence Todd was murdered.
Todd Sommer was not poisoned. The first mistake was when they labeled
this a murder... the second was when they said Cindy did it... Correct
the first mistake, and the second one corrects itself.
Many people understand that Todd Sommer was not poisoned. We know the
only explanation for the lab's findings is specimen contamination. The
lab results do no support poisoning, no matter the route or method.
Not ingested, not inhaled, not transcutaneous exposure. No route and
no method during life would have lead to those lab results - the only
possible cause is specimen contamination.
Cardiac arrhythmia. They had it right the first time. We don't have to
try to figure out what caused the arrhythmia. That's irrelevant. Cause
of death is cardiac arrhythmia, as the medical examiner first stated
on his autopsy report. That document, as we know, was altered based on
junk science. All the lab results that were presented as evidence are
nothing but junk. Toss out the junk science, we're back to square
one... and that is far enough.
Cause of death is anything that is incompatible with life. But for a
cardiac arrhythmia, Todd would still be alive. An arrhythmia is
electrical misfiring, and the causes can be numerous. Any theories
about why and how this arrhythmia occurred are purely speculative,
cannot be proven, and take away from the core issue. Proximate cause
isn't our concern, but one for the medical examiner to ascertain. He
determined natural causes. He found healthy tissue.
I hope you will give this some thought. How can this Marine rest in
peace when his widow is in jail, convicted of a murder that never
Thanks for your time.
