Sturgess died after the incidents, and her death has been treated as murder. Amesbury is near Salisbury, where Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were attacked with a substance in March. Britain has blamed Russia for the poisoning of the Skripals and has identified the poison as Novichok, a deadly group of nerve agents developed by the Soviet military in the 70s and 80s.
