Trust, Betrayal and, Mass Murder
By Jon Rappaport
If you were the head of a drug company…If you had no conscience (the key fact)…If one of your drugs was causing people to commit murder…If MANY law suits against your company were waiting to go to trial…And if the first such trial was convening…And if the verdict in that case would influence the outcome of all the other law suits…
What would you do?
This is the story of a medical drug, a famous drug company, trust, betrayal, and mass murder.
After 30 years, the truth is confirmed—Eli Lilly, the maker of Prozac, secretly paid off plaintiffs in a court case.
The plaintiffs were families of victims killed by a man who went violently crazy after taking Prozac.
The mass shooting took place in 1989, in Kentucky. I covered the case in 1999, by which time the Lilly payoff was an open secret among some lawyers, doctors, and reporters.
But NOW we have confessions from the plaintiffs who took Lilly’s money. In the trial, Eli Lilly was exonerated, absolved of any blame for murders by the jury.
