British detectives investigating the poisoning of two people by the nerve agent Novichok in southern England say scientists have found the source of the deadly substance.
The Metropolitan Police said Friday that a small bottle found during searches of Rowleys house Wednesday was tested and scientists confirmed the substance in the bottle was Novichok.
Police are still looking into where the bottle came from and how it came to be in Rowleys house. Further tests will be carried out to establish whether it is from the same batch that contaminated Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in March.

You have to wonder if the Rowleys were not victims, but instead were the attempted assassins of the Skirpals.
If you go and follow local UK news...this Dawn Sturgess was a hefty drinker, and hard-drug-user (way beyond weed). The Sun at some point suggested she was a heron user. Her boyfriend (he’s still alive) is believed to be a heavy druggie as well.
So the suggestion is that they ventured into some ‘drug den’ and picked up the container from there.
So these random people had a bottle of the most deadly nerve agent known in the medicine cabinet or somewhere?
“Here’s a hundred pound note. Spread some of this liquid on that doorknob.”
My thought too. A couple of ne'er-do-wells who might easily be bribed to do the dirty work.
One article, days ago, said they did dumpster-diving on occasion
Novi = New
chok = Death
The New Coke of Dying?
I read that too. They could have gotten it anywhere, in that case. Well, locally, because they probably wouldnt be the types that traveled much. So maybe somebody threw it away after using it and they picked it up, thinking it was some kind of drug that they might enjoy using.
He’s still alive.
The girlfriend/wife is dead.
As long as he lives, the source can be determined.
Help him fully recover, then put him on the Waterboard. The merciless full meal deal. Bouts of unconsciousness and short recovery...day in, day out.

Only a super-human could resist for 24 hours. And even they would not endure 48 hours.
Might be a good idea to actually show the freakin’ public what the Novichok container looks like because there could be other such vials out “there” somewhere that people show know to not handle.
Not necessary. The situation is fully under control.
Well, that would be a new development. Do tell.
Exactly, and just in time for President Trump's meeting with Putin. As if it was planned that way, along with the 12 indictments, etc, etc...
