Latest discoveries from Britain’s investigation into Sergei Skripal’s poisoning show the ex-Russian spy and his daughter, Yulia Skripal, were most likely poisoned at their home and secretly monitored by some unknown persons until emergency workers found them unconscious last weekend.
Investigators are retracing movements from the former Russian spy and his daughter before they collapsed from nerve-agent poisoning, as they try to discover how the toxin was administered.
Police have cordoned off sites including ex-spy Sergei Skripal’s house, a car, the cemetery where his wife is buried, a restaurant and a pub.
Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury on Sunday and they are currently in critical condition at a local hospital.
Former London police chief Ian Blair said Friday that a police officer who is in serious condition visited Skripal’s house — perhaps a hint that the nerve agent may have been delivered there.
Blair told BBC radio that Det. Sgt. Nick Bailey “has actually been to the house, whereas there is a doctor who looked after the patients in the open who hasn’t been affected at all. There may be some clues floating around in here.”
British authorities have deployed members of the military to assist police in their investigations.
