Who is the mysterious Santa who has poisoned eight people at Berlin Christmas markets?

If a man dressed as Santa Claus offered you a drink at a Christmas market, would you take it? Eight people in Berlin have fallen ill after accepting drinks from an unidentified 40-year-old man, with the latest victim being a 15-year-old girl who had to go to hospital after the incident on Saturday.

The girl suffered vomiting and short-term memory loss after taking the drink, which is confirmed to have been laced with some kind of unusual substance. Police haven’t conclusively linked the case to a series of seven similar incidents at Berlin’s Christmas markets last week, but there seems to be a reasonable chance of a link.

The suspect is believed to approach people and offer them free drinks in paper cups. The drinks contain alcohol and, apparently, some other kind of substance that causes temporary illness.

  2. We teach and train our children not to accept anything from strangers. We should practice what we teach.
