A love triangle that started with Gonzalez-Angulo sitting in Blumenschein’s lap as they worked on scholarly papers. He called her his “Little Princess.”
We could make this stuff up. Unfortunately, we don’t have to.
In the state of Texas a superior court jury found a Houston cancer specialist guilty of assault last week, after she spiked the coffee of a coworker with a deadly chemical.
Doctor Ana Gonzalez-Angulo, age 43, was on trial for poisoning Doctor George Blumenschein, a research colleague with whom she worked.
According to court records, the prosecution convinced the jury that Gonzalez-Angulo was a “devious and diabolical person” who became obsessed with George Blumenschein. The investigation revealed that their relationship turned into a “fatal attraction” and Gonzalez-Angulo decided to kill Blumenschein. Blumenschein testified that he had broken off the relationship in order to make amends with his long-term girlfriend, Doctor Evette Toney, whom he had lived with for 10 years.
Blumenschein testified that, on the day of the assault, January 27 2013, he was stricken seriously ill within 30 minutes after he and Gonzalez-Angulo had a sexual encounter at her home. He suspected that she had put something into his coffee, which tasted different than usual. Detectives later learned that Gonzalez-Angulo had arranged for a liquid compound, ethylene glycol, to be delivered to the lab at the University of Texas Anderson Cancer Center where they were both on staff. It was not a chemical that was normally used in their work. A toxicology report revealed that Blumenschein had ingested a large and sudden dose of ethylene glycol that day.
Witnesses testified that the lady doctor had bragged more than once that she had “had people killed before.”
During the trial, another doctor in the same department, Marjorie Green, told the court that Gonzalez-Angulo had confessed to her after Blumenschein had been poisoned that, “she was nervous because she’d had ethylene glycol shipped to her office.”
In the meantime, lothario Blumenschein has partially recovered, although he has been left with less that 50% of healthy kidney function.
Doctor Ana Gonzalez-Angulo, who for more than a decade has enjoyed international respect for her work as a breast cancer oncologist at Houston’s Anderson Cancer Center, could spend the next 20 years in state prison when she is sentenced.
Here’s a bit more on these medically degreed, soap opera nutcases:

Ana Maria Angulo immigrated to the United States after graduating from the University of Cauca, Division of Health Science in Colombia. Even though her victim did not die, he was left with permanent kidney damage, and this most recent lab coat loon still makes our list of Third World Assassins.
Incidentally, Angulo’s home country’s largest export? Coffee.
