Texas Poisoning Case: A Toxic Relationship?
A Renowned Breast Cancer Specialist Is Charged with Lacing Her Lover's Coffee with An Antifreeze Chemical
On May 29, Gonzalez-Angulo, 42, a "woman dedicated to saving lives," as one colleague puts it, was charged with felony aggravated assault. Her weapon of choice, court records allege: ethylene glycol, a sweet-tasting chemical found in hospitals - and antifreeze. Her alleged motive is harder to identify. In Houston medical circles, it's old gossip that the divorced Gonzalez-Angulo and Blumenschein, 49, were having what police called a "casual sexual relationship." It's also no secret that Blumenschein lives with his longtime girlfriend, to whom, says a source close to the case, "Dr. Blumenschein apparently had been engaged at the time of the alleged poisoning."
Whether those facts do - or don't - add up, Gonzalez-Angulo's attorney Derek Hollingsworth insists, "Dr. Gonzalez-Angulo is completely innocent." And her patients? "She's been a great doctor," says Bertha Bejarano, 47. "I'd like to see her again soon."
