A new investigation by the Times reveals that a Canadian man has been supplying suicidal young people in Britain with poison to take their own lives. Kenneth Law set up websites that allowed vulnerable Brits to purchase a lethal substance without authorities suspecting the scheme, and offered advice on how to ensure that death occurs. Four suicides in the UK have been linked to Law’s activities — an unspeakable tragedy for the families involved. “Hundreds” more people are thought to have obtained the substance.
