Tests show Alabama man poisoned self after conviction
<![CDATA[TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Forensic tests showed that a Tuscaloosa man who swallowed something in court moments after being convicted of child sexual abuse last year used strychnine to kill himself, authorities said. The Tuscaloosa News (http://bit.ly/1gXTtfQ ) reported state investigators ruled that William Thomas Moore Jr., 42, committed suicide in August. A toxicology report showed the man's system contained strychnine, oxycodone and amphetamines. "It appears that he had brought the drugs that were found in his system to court with him that day," said Sgt. Dale Phillips, commander of the Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit. Court workers saw Moore put something in his mouth in the courtroom right after jurors convicted him of sexually abusing a young girl on Aug. 12. Moore had been free on bond during the trial, but was sent to jail immediately after the verdict. He had a seizure on the way to jail and died within an hour. In court, Moore said he was only taking his daily medication after the verdict. But Moore later told jailers he had taken cyanide, officials said. Medics, who carry an antidote to cyanide, used it on the man without any result. Moore faced as long as 20 years in prison. His death came just weeks after a Missouri man used cyanide to commit suicide in court after being convicted on a charge of molesting a girl. Moore's family owns a pest control company and strychnine is sometimes used as a pesticide to kill rodents, but authorities said they were unsure where he obtained the poison. Moore, who police said had worked with the pest control company, was indicted in December 2011. He was acquitted on a sodomy charge before the guilty verdict was announced.
