Why would anyone want to poison a woman that is simply trying to make the world a happier place one orgasm at a time? Truly a sad state of affairs…but Jacqueline Gold contends that on 3 separate occasions her nanny attempted to poison her in an attempt to “annoy”.
But the sex-shop magnate, whose books – including an autobiography titled “Good Vibrations” – and business acumen made her Britain’s 16th richest woman now is in the news for another reason: Her nanny was in court Wednesday, accused of spiking the racy retail boss’s soup with windshield-wiper fluid, a substance highly unlikely to be poisonous in small quantities.
The ex-nanny is accused of trying to poison her boss with salt on Sept. 29 and trying again with sugar on Oct. 4 before using windshield wiper fluid on Oct 5. She was arrested the next day.The charge: three counts of administering poison with the intent to annoy.
The accusations came after Gold, a glamorous brunette, criticized her cook last fall when her soup tasted odd. The chef then became suspicious and removed the leftover broth from the trash to investigate.
Apparently, the nanny wasn’t trying to kill the sex mogul, just make her sick and get a couple of cheap laughs.
No possible motive for the alleged crimes against Gold has been suggested by police or prosecutors. It is not immediately clear what prompted officials to point the finger at Allison Cox, 33, who looked after Gold’s young daughter. The case is unusual because the sustances at issue are not all that harmful, says Robert Forrest, a forensic chemistry professor at the University of Sheffield.
“You can give a poisonous substance to someone … just to annoy them,” Forrest said. “The satisfaction the perpetrator gets is from knowing that you are humiliating the victim.”
Maybe the nanny had a bad experience with a malfunctioning vibrator…*Kanye shrug*
