Suspected Poisoning Case Investigated
The Putnam County sheriff's department is investigating a possible case of poisoning after getting a complaint from a woman who got sick after drinking a cup of coffee at her home. The 35-year-old victim told investigators that she believes her son may have put something poisonous into the coffee. She and another person who had become sick after drinking the beverage were taken to the hospital for treatment, and deputies took possession of the coffee cup for further examination. The investigation continues.
