comment Prove your innocence
Offtopic: I love that we are not using rot13 in answer comments anymore. It was never really needed, as a person must scroll and read fine print to see what answer comments contain. In this case, I don't think the abundance of caution was warranted.

FYI, you cannot reprocess in the way you described without leaving evidence. Doing a perfect reprocessing would require information that simply doesn't exist in the video.

comment How was the murder committed?
@Abbas I like your thinking regarding the temperature, but it's compatible with your answer but not mine: salts typically don't evaporate, and making the change you describe would not cause the humidifier to turn on when it should be off.

comment How was the murder committed?
@Adam My point (wrong as you pointed out regarding the locked door) was that it should not have been running, hence an attacker probably turned it on. So yes it would have been running during the shower. And the question doesn't say it was ingested. The current wording would simply make this answer even nicer, since readers would assume "consumed" means it was eaten, but that would be a false inference (if my answer were right).

@Adam To me it seems like that link supports me rather than ruling out the explanation. You are correct about the locked door, so this answer is not right. It would feel like cheating to say "and the attacker had the key", so I'll note the flaw in my answer.

Also, the ROT13 thing is driving me nuts, so I can't argue this any further. If my points as written are not convincing, I nonetheless have to let them stand.

@Adam TL;DR: the discussion does not contain compelling arguments. Many deliveries are possible, but this is the one that's hinted at by the question. My answer to the discussion on the other answer: Vs gur dhrfgvba zrnag gb fnl gur cbvfba jnf rngra, vg jbhyq unir fnvq "vatrfgrq". Nppbeqvat gb zl ernqvat, gur dhrfgvba qbrf abg cerpyhqr vaunyngvba.

@Rubio I found that the answer you mention did not address any of my points. However, I will add a clarification (regarding the exact compound) to distinguish further. See this reference which describes that this delivery mechanism is plausible, regardless of what the other answer claimed: cdc.gov/niosh/ershdb/emergencyresponsecard_29750037.html

comment What is a Workman Word™?
Did you mean to leave the hint blank? It would be better not to put the hint in that case, because people will be unable to see whether you add a hint without mousing over it each time. That is a cognitively bad habit.

comment Huh? That's a word?
This is better than the correct answer, as it doesn't depend on misinterpreting grammar and punctuation.
