A man from California is sentenced 19 years jail time after tricking eight homeless people into eating poisoned food. The food was poisoned with 'Capsicum Oleoresin' which is 'twice as strong' as a pepper spray. This can make its victims almost gag to death. Luckily, all the victims were now admitted to hospitals and they survive.
William Robert Cable, a 38-year-old man from northern California of town San Andreas offered homeless people to be part of a video blog entitled 'spicy food challenge.' To persuade them even more, Cable said that they will be given a bottle of beer after they eat the food.
As most of them strive for food, these people had no choice but to accept what Cable had given. When they were chewing the food, the victims suffered fatal reactions with their body, including seizure-like symptoms, difficulty breathing, and vomiting.
Orange County's district attorney Todd Spitzer said,
They were exploited and poisoned as part of a twisted a form of entertainment, and their pain was recorded so that it could be relived by their attacker over and over again.
