Smyrna Suspected Poisoning Case: Man Charged with Murder Following Third Illness

A 51-year-old man is charged with aggravated assault with intent to murder in Smyrna, Georgia, after a third person became seriously ill from alleged poisoned papers. Charges against Little Gaston Stone include sending documents that purportedly exposed people to a dangerous material.

After Stone allegedly brought papers to Smyrna Second Baptist Church, an employee of the church became seriously ill. This development led to Stone being charged by Smyrna Police with aggravated assault in addition to the two felonies he was already facing for a comparable incident at the Smyrna Police headquarters.

On February 6, Stone reportedly handed papers to the police headquarters, causing symptoms in two officers including severe exhaustion, chest pain, and trouble breathing. The investigation turned up that Stone had written down his activities on a tablet and that the papers were meant for Smyrna Police Chief Keith Zgnoc.

Unsettlingly enough, the church staffer who had come into touch with the documents behind the door became unwell not long after. Extreme exhaustion, perspiration, and chest heaviness were among the symptoms, just like those of the policemen who had witnessed Stone’s previous delivery.

Suspicion of intentional poisoning was aroused when more research showed Stone’s name was connected to both occurrences. Concerns over Stone’s possible role in both cases were aroused by the close proximity of Smyrna Police headquarters to Smyrna Second Baptist Church.

The papers were delivered to the police department on February 6 at the same time that Stone was arrested. Accused of misdemeanor probation violation, aggravated assault against police, and aggravated assault with intent to murder, he is still in detention at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center without bond.

Remarkably, Stone was on probation when he was taken into custody; in April 2021, he had entered a guilty plea to terrorist threats. The nature of the accusations emphasizes how serious the matter is and how dangerous Stone’s acts might be.

The FBI is still looking into the alleged poisoning occurrences; they are testing the documents that Stone brought to the Smyrna Police HQ. Authorities are making great effort to find out how much Stone was involved and to make sure justice is done.
