It’s believed that the stalker obtained the poison through his workplace, where he’s in charge with storing the chemical, hydrofluoric acid. It’s normally used to dissolve rocks and minerals.

Previously, the woman had gone to the hospital once before after wearing a pair of boots caused her severe pain. It’s believed that the man likely played a part in that incident as well, but it’s still being investigated.
