In the British city of Amesbury, not far from Salisbury, after poisoning with the nerve agent “Novice”, 44-year-old Don Sturgess died, according to the Scotland Yard website.
The counterterrorism department of the police began an investigation into the murder case. The autopsy Sturgess is planned to be held later.
Sturgess had three children. The family of the deceased woman through the police asked the media not to disturb them “in such a difficult time.”
According to the British police, the 45-year-old Charles Rowley, who was with Sturgess and received a dose of “Novice,” is still in hospital and remains in critical condition.
June 29 Sturgess and Rowley were found in a private home in Amesbury, when they were already unconscious. They felt ill and managed to call an ambulance. Initially, the police said that the couple was poisoned by drugs, but later came to the conclusion that they were exposed to “Novice.”
