(Big Bear City, CA) -When detectives broke through the cabin door in Big Bear City, they expected to find marijuana plants. They did not expect Jason Clark Williamson.
Combining knowledge from a couple of college chemistry courses with information from the Internet, Williamson apparently figured out how to manufacture a synthetic heroin so powerful that just touching a pure form of the drug can kill, police say.
