That is frightening to learn this could have been caused by industrial poisoning in this man's blood.

My cousin worked this tragedy as a paramedic. I remember it took a toll on him. He quit being a paramedic shortly after.

"[Huberty's wife] also filed a lawsuit against McDonald’s, charging that chemicals in the McNuggets that James consumed shortly before the incident had caused him uncontrollable delusions. This, too, was unsuccessful."

What a ridiculous suggestion!

What's with the name calling and childish rants? This is a serious story and people are trying to contribute some background. No need for the nonsense.

I am glad the McDonald's gunman is dead for the absolute good, so it can save taxpayers a pretty penny for a trial!
