The Bulgarian umbrella is the name of an umbrella with a hidden pneumatic mechanism which shot out a small poisonous pellet containing ricin. The Bulgarian Umbrella has a hollow stalk which the pellet neatly sits into. Such an umbrella was allegedly used in the assassination of the Bulgarian dissident writer Georgi Markov on September 7, 1978 (the birthday of the Bulgarian State Council Chairman Todor Zhivkov who had often been the target of Georgi Markov’s criticism), on Waterloo Bridge in London (Markov died four days later), and also allegedly used in the failed assassination attempt against the Bulgarian dissident journalist Vladimir Kostov the same year in the Paris Métro. The poison used in both cases was ricin.

Would either or you know what the weather was like in Los Angeles the night that Andrew was assassinated?

If it was raining, which would be quite unusual for LA, an umbrella in the hands of the assassin would not be conspicuous. if it was raining, was the rain extremely isolated as if it was targeted somehow?

If it was not raining, were there reports of possible CIA drones flying over the city and would they use such a technology to assassinate Andrew?
