Almost 30 years ago, the big news in America was the Tylenol tampering case – the first ever instance of product tampering in the world. .Now, decades later, the person who killed seven people in America by putting cyanide in bottles of Tylenol, and placing them on drug store shelves, has never been caught. Which means the $100,000 reward Tylenol makers, Johnson & Johnson, is still available.
Do you have any information that could lead to the capture of the Tylenol killer? Did someone in your family know the Tylenol killer? Could you be the person to help police arrest the cowardly murderer who killed seven random men, women and children, while hiding in the shadows? If you want to help catch the Tylenol killer and, of course, claim the $100,000 reward, here’s what you need to know.
History of the Tylenol Murders – The Tylenol murders came to the attention of police when, in 1982, seven people in the Chicago area took Tylenol, then died of Cyanide poisoning a few minutes later. The youngest victim was only 12 years old. The oldest was 35. The lot numbers of the tainted bottles of Tylenol were MD 1910, MC 2880, MA 1801, and MB 2738. Each bottle was taken from other stores, then placed on shelves at different stores once they had had cyanide-laced capsules added to the bottle. All of the bottles were discovered in stores in and around the Chicago, Illinois area.
Tips To Help You Claim The $100,000 Reward – There are several things you should know that might help you claim the $100,000 Johnson & Johnson reward:
1. The Tylenol killer likely drove on highways 90/94, 290 & 294, driving in a near circular route when dropping off his cyanide-laced Tylenol bottles on drug store shelves.
2. The cyanide used in the Tylenol bottles was a compound called potassium cyanide, which is used in gold and silver mining, fertilizer production, steel plating, metal extraction and the film processing industry. The Tylenol killer could have worked in any of these industries, but could also have known someone who did, or have even made the compound him/herself.
3, The way the cyanide was put into the Tylenol capsules was clumsy and the mark of an amateur. This suggests he/she was not a professional pharmacist or had anything to do with the pharmacy industry, as a professional would have been able to add the cyanide to the Tylenol capsules leaving it difficult to detect.
4. Police think the tampered-with Tylenol bottles were replaced on store shelves on the same Wednesday afternoon. Does this day have any significance to the person who did it? Was he not working? Unemployed? A stay at home mother or a student?
5. Did any of the seven victims have an enemy and the other six murders were just a cover for his or her murder? No connection has ever been made to the particular people who died, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible.
6. There’s not enough information of the killer to come up with a profile. Although some have tried, the Tylenol killer could easily be male or female, young or old, black, white or Asian, poor or rich, lived in the Chicago area or not and on and on. To claim the $100,000 Johnson & Johnson reward, you’d have to have precise information and not just the guesswork amateur sleuths have been using for the last 30 years.
Alternate Story – A fascinating website, American Fraud, has an incredibly detailed investigation on its site that accuses Johnson & Johnson of instigating a massive cover up after cyanide was put into thousands of bottles of Tylenol while still at the plant, and not at area drug stores as has been the traditional story for the last 30 years.
If this is the case, Johnson & Johnson’s $100,000 reward still being available makes sense. Johnson & Johnson knows it wasn’t just some random crazy person who contaminated the Tylenol bottles. In fact, it could have been someone with a vendetta against Johnson & Johnson; someone who even worked at the company and had access to tens of thousands of Tylenol bottles.
Whatever the real story, as far as we know, the real Tylenol killer has never been caught. The $100,000 reward (which, by rights, Johnson & Johnson should have increased for inflation), is still available. if you were the one to finally solve this 30 year old murder mystery, you could suddenly become a lot richer as well as fairly famous.
