    Case Series of Self-Inflicted Sodium Nitrite Toxicity in Three Michigan Counties: A Comparison of Scene Investigations, Toxicology, and Autopsy Findings. Sodium nitrite toxicity has become increasingly popular as a means for suicide due to its ease of access within the United States.

Knowing the extensive touch to the lives of many and potential discoveries further strengthens a family’s support of donation and pride in the legacy of their loved one.
