Britain opens murder case on woman dead from Russian nerve agent

British police say a woman who was exposed to the nerve agent Novichok in southern England has died.

Police had been working to discover how Dawn Sturgess and a 45-year-old man had come across an item contaminated with Novichok, which was developed by the Soviet military during n the Cold War. "The 45-year-old man who fell ill with Dawn remains critically ill in hospital and our thoughts are with him and his family as well", he said in a statement.

Her boyfriend, Charlie Rowley, 45, is now on life support in Salisbury District Hospital, but is not expected to make a full recovery.

The Metropolitan Police said on Sunday that 44-year-old Dawn Sturgess, one of two more individuals exposed to the Soviet-era nerve agent Novichok in the United Kingdom this week, has died.

Investigators say the main line of inquiry is establishing whether the incident is linked to the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March.

The head of UK Counter Terrorism policing, Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, said Sturgess, a mother of three, died as the result of "an outrageous, reckless and barbaric act".

Under Conservative Party rules, a leadership race could be triggered if at least 48 of her MPs declared their support for one. In her response, Mrs May said that "I do not agree with your characterisation of the policy we agreed at cabinet on Friday".

Police said the investigation "into the attempted murders of the Skripals is ongoing as detectives continue to assess all the evidence available".

The British government has accused Russian Federation of poisoning the Skripals but Moscow has denied any involvement in either incident.

Salisbury MP John Glen said: 'There is always a temptation in these circumstances to look to blame the Government, or the police, or the local authority.

Rowley regularly scavenged for goods to fix and sell, leading to the possibility that he and Sturgess might have inadvertently found the container used to transport the Novichok.

Also Monday, Moscow foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova repeated demands that Russian Federation be allowed consular access to the Skripals.

More than 100 police are working to try and search all areas where Sturgess and Rowley had been before they became ill nine days ago.

It was the Kremlin's first reaction to the poisoning of two British citizens exposed to Novichok near Salisbury in England, where former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned in March.

According to CBS News, the container is likely a syringe or vial.

Officers are still trying to work out how Ms. Sturgess and Mr. Rowley were exposed to the nerve agent although tests have confirmed they touched a contaminated item with their hands.

"The staff here at Salisbury District Hospital worked tirelessly to save Dawn".

After the Skripal attack, Britain tossed out two dozen Russian diplomats suspected of being intelligence agents.
