Arizona police are now conducting a homicide investigation into the woman who claimed she gave her husband fish tank cleaner after hearing President Trump talk about the possibility of using the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus.
Wanda Lenius originally told media that she and her husband Gary had consumed fish tank cleaner mixed with soda because it contained chloroquine phosphate and thought it would help prevent the coronavirus. Wanda was left in critical condition, and her husband died.
"My advice, don't believe anything that the president says and his people because they don't know what they're talking about," Wanda said at the time.
Investigation by the Washington Free Beacon revealed that Wanda was prolific Democrat donor with violent tendencies and had been previously charged with domestic assault against her husband. Mesa City Police Department said that it is now starting a criminal investigation into Gary's death and has requested copies of the outlet's interviews with Wanda.
"As this is an active investigation, I cannot go into any details at this time regarding the case," homicide detective Teresa Van Galder told the Free Beacon.
