Upbringing of a serial killer

German alchemist Henning Brand discovered phosphorus in 1669 by heating up the left-over residue of urine. He is considered the last of alchemists, because alchemy existed from 500 B.C to the end of the 16th century. Brand wanted to find a way to change metals into gold, so he heated 60 pails of urine, and got phosphorus instead. The phosphorus vapor glowed green when it reacted with air.

Known Associates

Farmers use enormous amounts of fertilizer that contains nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. These elements are crucial to crop growth.

Phosphorus pentasulfide (P 2 S 5 ) is made to make paper-safety matches. When the match head is scratched on a surface, the phosphorus pentasulfide burst into flame, which ignites the match head.


WARNING.

Although phosphorus is stable, it reacts violently to heat and can be fatal. If a civilian spots this criminal, he/she must call trained officials to deal with it.
