Every aspect of how Iodine 131 is kept and transported is nonsense. It would not be kept in plastic syringes in a standard fridge; heavy lead shielding is needed to handle it safely but we see none; the ease with which the murderer got hold of the lethal amounts of I-131 shows that the safety measures were grossly inadequate and would have attracted much attention from regulatory authorities.

Belle King: How much?
