CHICAGO (CBS) -- Major developments surfaced Thursday into the 40-year-old investigation into the Tylenol murders in the greater Chicago area.
CBS 2 Chicago learned that investigators travelled to the Boston area this week to re-interview the man considered a suspect in the seven deaths.
James Lewis was never charged with the murders, but he was convicted of trying to extort $1 million from Johnson & Johnson in the days after the cyanide-laced pills showed up on store shelves.
The CBS 2 Investigators began re-examining the case back in April; reporter Brad Edwards travelled to Massachusetts last month to try to track down Lewis. He was living at the very same Cambridge apartment he moved into after being released from prison.

I remember it too. Was quite a moment.
Oh, look - the police children have found a large box of money that they can burn through.
Keep your head down, collect the money they stole from you.
And no step on snek.
What I remember most is retail packaging was never quite the same after that. Everything came triple sealed up and then “child proofed” as well, and then anti-shoplifting became a thing, too. Fricking Houdini couldn’t get out of some of that stuff, blister packaging .10” thick
So weird, I was just thinking about this case 2 days ago when I was having trouble getting a safety top off a bottle.
This "investigation" is free, and doesn't cost any taxpayer money.
Hopefully, the investigators will find some 200 or 300 year-old cases they can do for free, too.
Referencing my post about the fibbies above.
I've worked for the feds.
The taxpayers are shelling out premium gelt to get 25-30 agents on site for a raid on a "dangerous" father of seven.

All I was doing was posting about a story and crime that happened 40 years ago.
The dude or dudette that committed the crime got away with it.
Let's move on, and stop spending my tax dollars just because they can.
This isn't on you.
BTW - I've been meaning to thank you for posting the links to the great old tunes that you've been doing lately. :)

Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Those who don't learn about economics are doomed to be financially swamped by children-leaders who have bottomless checkbooks and no-limit credit cards.
BTW - I got lots of history books.
Yes, this is an interesting post and an interesting subject - but I'm just going to point out that there's Abuse of Taxpayer Dollars Under Colour of Authority going on all over this country.
Think about the investigations into Trump by Letitia James.
Is that free? Or is the fat vicious skank burning taxpayer dollars for her own personal ends?

All I did was post about a bizzare 40 year unsolved crime, that I remember as a teenager.
Are you on fentanyl?
Cab-Merlot, and I just paid summer property taxes.
Well good for you, you were probably at the head of the line, demanding that the illegals being thrown off Martha's Vineyard.
Good Night, I need to go to bed, but you can stew with your cabby-merlot.
I like you.
I wasn't attacking you - I was attacking the government spendthrifts.
But people shouldn't have to die to make these things happen.
Thanks for posting it. The person who poisoned the pills killed a lot of people. I would not mind at all if they found the perp. I remember this well. It made me realize that we are not as civilized as I thought, that we need everything to be sealed because some nut might try to put poison in something.
Really. Forty years! We were on a Sitmar cruise when it happened. No CCTV then, so got the news via a sheet of paper slipped under the door.
