A man from Maryland identified as Liam Ghershony placed a near-lethal dose of drugs into his father’s tea to take his phone and obtain access to a $400,000 bitcoin account, as reported by the Washington Post.
Gershoney began trading in the bitcoin market with his father after introducing him to it. The father stated that he included his kid as a partner in a $100,000 investing account in an interview. As a result, they both invested in cryptocurrency together, which resulted in a considerable return for them.
The father and son could cash out some of their assets and were left with an after-tax profit of $350,000 since the investment account was now worth even more. However, when Liam got concerned about falling market values when the 2017/2018 bull market began to weaken, problems began to surface. Liam’s usage of drugs, to which he grew addicted, increased his paranoia.
Liam addressed his father about cashing the rest of the wallet and informed him that he needed to sell. However, the father recalls telling his son that he needed to quit doing drugs.
Liam developed a new strategy to liquidate his bitcoin holdings, obsessed with taking control of the situation. They both ate supper before calling it a day, and Liam took advantage of the circumstance by providing his father tea laced with ‘benzos,’ persuading him that the beverage would give him energy. His father remembers drinking the tea but has no recollection of what followed.
