In 2012, an outbreak of fungal meningitis sickened hundreds of Americans and lead to the deaths of 76 people. The man being held responsible for these deaths? Glenn Chin, a former pharmacist with the New England Compounding Center. But why was he being charged with murder?
Chin was the pharmacist who supervised so-called clean rooms where drugs were manufactured within the NECC. Per the records presented to the jury, 778 people nationwide were sickened after being injected with the contaminated steroids from these unsanitary conditions.
Chin supposedly instructed his employees to forgo specific cleaning regulations, causing contamination of the steroids in question. The rooms at the New England Compounding Center had a large presence of animal feces, mold, insects, and rats to name a few.
Failure to Prove Murder
Despite the contamination and deaths, the jury agreed that prosecutors failed to demonstrate how Chin committed second-degree murder of the 25 people, who were injected with mold-tainted steroids.
A guilty verdict however reigned down upon the co-founder and former president, Barry Cadden. The jury found him guilty of fraud, and racketeering and cleared him of murder. Cadden was sentenced in June 2017 to 9 years in prison. Chin may have the same sealed fate of 9 years, when he is set to be sentenced in January 2018.
This is an example of where using EyeDetec to question a suspect, would be beneficial. Using the EyeDetect solution would be an inexpensive and quick way to ask the suspect if they were guilty of the accusations held against them.
EyeDetect, a new lie detector solution that measures changes in eye behavior, attains 86% accuracy. EyeDetect can be used as a tool to question the validity of suspects and witnesses. Combined with polygraph, EyeDetect reaches 98.9% accuracy.
