Suicide kits sold online in Canada, Interpol discovers Italians who bought them

An alleged Toronto chef would have sold a suicide kit online, eight of which, according to reports from Canada’s Interpol, would have been bought in Italy. This was reported by Repubblica, which explained how one of these could have been used in Trentino, in Borgo Valsugana, by a woman, a 63-year-old teacher, found lifeless at home. Canadian Interpol, which raised the alarm about these kits, blocked several sites where it was for sale and identified the chef who supplies them as Kenneth Law, who lives in Ontario. The man allegedly confirmed that he had traded hundreds of them in the UK. Shipments would be made from a Toronto post office. The kit consists of a fake face mask based on sodium nitrite which, if applied, leads to death by poisoning.

In Britain at least seven people may have committed suicide with the kit

The investigation into the trade in suicide kits was carried out by the British newspaper Times. Until now it was believed that Law had only sold the kit in Great Britain, where there are already seven people who have so far committed suicide with the equipment he supplied, including a 22-year-old Berkshire resident. “I’m doing God’s work,” Law allegedly told a Times reporter that he feigned willingness to buy his own kit and inquired about how to use it properly.

The alert on sales in Italy dates on April 29th

In Italy, the Interpol division received the alarm from Canada last April 29, when the addresses to which Law had sent the kit were reported. The police forces and local social and health authorities were also notified, and they were entrusted with the task of getting in touch with the people who had bought the suicide kit. It was through one of these checks that the death of the Trentino woman emerged. At her home he had also left a message for the family that said: “I’m sorry, I’m too sick, too much pain.”
