A43-year-old woman of De­g­los has died af­ter drink­ing gramox­one. Po­lice were sum­moned to the scene of the sus­pected sui­cide at De­g­los, Bexon on Mon­day, Jan­uary 23rd. They found Priscil­lia Mar­shall-Daniel at her res­i­dence, ap­pear­ing to have in­gested a toxic sub­stance. She was trans­ported to the Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal, via am­bu­lance, where she was ad­mit­ted for treat­ment, but sub­se­quently passed away.

A post mortem con­ducted upon the body by Dr. Heather Em­manuel re­vealed that Mar­shal­lDaniel died as a re­sult of as­pi­ra­tion pneu­moni­tis sec­ondary to paraquat (gramox­one) in­ges­tion.

The cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the death are cur­rently un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
