CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Caged - S2-E7

Corrected entry: The CSI team determine a woman died after accidentally ingesting ricin (which she tried to use to kill someone else). She died within minutes of sticking her ricin covered pen into her mouth. According to the CDC, death by ingestion of ricin will occur within 36-72 hours (depending on potency, amount, etc.), not a matter of minutes. And, death could not have been from inhalation during her manufacturing of the ricin. They make it a point to show her burnt-looking tongue as the place where ricin was introduced to the body.

Correction: It is true that Ricin was introduced in the mouth, but it does not state when. Yes, Aaron saw the woman put the pen in her mouth, but this didn't necessarily have to be the only point when she did so. She showed she does have a habit of chewing on her pen so the poison could have been introduced to her body before she was in the cage.
