A CANADIAN chef is being probed over 88 suspected poisoning deaths in the UK after he allegedly sold chemicals online.
Kenneth Law, 57, from Toronto, is accused of selling 1,200 packages of lethal chemicals to suicidal people in 40 countries worldwide.
Now the National Crime Agency (NCA), known as Britain’s FBI, has said 232 people in the UK bought items from Law’s websites – with 88 of them dying.
David Parfett’s 22-year-old son Tom died in 2021 after allegedly taking poison which he had bought from Law.
The grieving dad told The Times: ” Now we know the horrific death toll, it is important for families to understand what has happened and why policing worldwide allowed this despite clear warning signs.
“Even today, there are people who promote suicide to the young and vulnerable.
“There are many other Kenneth Laws.”
Law told an undercover reporter from the paper over the phone that he had “hundreds” of UK customers – and that he was doing “God’s work”.
When confronted in person, he said: “I’m just selling a product.
“Perhaps you may want to stop people buying knives and guns.”
Another suspected victim of Law was Imogen Nunn, 25, from Brighton.
Imogen, a deaf TikTok star with 780,000, took her life on New Year’s Day this year.
The NCA’s Craig Turner said: “Our deepest sympathies are with the loved ones of those who have died.
“They are being supported by specially trained officers from police forces.
“In consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, the NCA has taken the decision to conduct an investigation into potential criminal offences committed in the UK. This operation is under way.”
A spokesperson added: “At this early stage there are no confirmed links between the items purchased from the websites and cause of death in any of these cases.”
Several of Law’s suspected victims were university students in their early twenties.
Many of them are thought to have come across his website through an online suicide forum.
British cops have repeatedly probed Law since 2021 – but failed to realise that he was allegedly selling chemicals for death.
