In response to their questions, Higgs explained to Mussell and Proffitt that he had been alone in the house with his wife since the prior evening. He claimed that he had awakened early that morning and had left Kathy sleeping in their bed. He explained that when he returned to their bedroom a short time later, he discovered that his wife had stopped breathing. He suggested to the two officers that his wife had a heart condition that might have caused her to stop breathing. He didn’t go into detail about her condition at that time, but later said that his wife had been complaining recently of a stomachache and heartburn.
Among the many things he learned was that if used correctly by a medical professional, succinylcholine’s medical uses include temporarily paralyzing respiratory muscles to allow the easy insertion of breathing tubes. However, if used improperly or with malicious intent, it can be deadly. If injected into the body in larger doses, it can cause organ failure and death. He also learned that it dissipates quickly from a person’s bloodstream, leaving behind few traces. The person who dies as a result of succinylcholine being misused goes through horrific and agonizing pain and suffering after the drug begins to take effect, before succumbing to unconsciousness and death—all the while being able to stare helplessly at the person who had administered the injection.
Both of the samples were retained by the Washoe Medical Center’s laboratory—some were preserved just in case they were needed later. At one point that morning, Swanbeck encountered Higgs at the hospital. She noticed that his demeanor seemed calm. He did not appear excited, and he seemed to be disengaged from the crisis of the situation. She noted that he was not sobbing, that there were no tears, and that he hadn’t asked any questions about the condition of his wife. She briefly remembered her past encounters with Higgs, when he often spoke of his intention to leave Kathy.
