Murder by methanol looks at the Diane Fleming murder case. She was convicted of murder and got 30 years for poisoning her husband with methanol and 20 years for adulteration of a substance with methanol.
Despite overwhelming additional expert evidence of her innocence, Diane Fleming is still locked up, with no hope of a retrial. Misdemeanours by the prosecution add to the farce and the possible wrong diagnosis by the hospital and hence the likely wrong treatment which led to Chuck’s death. An inefficient and incomplete autopsy added to this saga, with the medical examiner not checking and reporting on levels of formic acid, nor for optic nerve damage, despite these conditions being the known symptoms of methanol poisoning.
UPDATE…Diane has been released, see the end of the article
Although this research particularly concentrates on depression and suicidal thoughts that pilots suffer from, the fact that so many pilots are admitting to these conditions could be a sign that some are in fact ingesting aspartame on a regular basis which would exacerbate or even cause their conditions.

In Flight Safety Part 1, I covered how the side effects of aspartame could actually cause problems for pilots and crew and consequently be a hazard for all those onboard a flight. Captain Clayton Osbon suffered a mental episode and has now lost his livelihood and has been vilified and treated abominably because of an illness that was not his fault. How unfair!(See Part 3 and the Epilogue here) Continue reading Flight Safety – Pilot Error?→
Have you ever wondered about the health of the pilot that’s flying the plane you’re on? Flight safety considers the effects on pilots from ingesting diet sodas, gums and other diet foods. (see Part 2 Pilot Error, Part 3 Aircraft Accidents of 2015 and the Epilogue)
I’m talking specifically about aspartame which seems to be the artificial sweetener of choice, despite the fact that it was passed by the FDA under a cloud of fraud, misdemeanour and deception in the days when Donald Rumsfeld was CEO of the then owner of aspartame G D Searle.
