Aussie may have been poisoned
Astrophysicist Rodney Marks who died of acute methanol intoxication in 2000 may have been poisoned according to evidence given at the inquiry opened this week in Christchurch.
According to evidence given at the enquiry opened by the Christchurch coroner it seems that Rodney Marks may have been poisoned by a colleague in the station (Amundsen-Scott). Evidence given by Detective Senior Sergeant Grant Wormald, who headed the police investigation into Marks's death, stated "In my view it is most likely Dr Marks ingested the methanol unknowingly,". The source of the methanol has never been found.
