Cambridge residents can be a sketchy crew, and James W. Lewis may be the sketchiest among them. In 1982, seven people died in the Chicago area because some Tylenol pills they took were laced with cyanide. (CYANIDE!) The case was never solved—and the $100,000 reward offered by Johnson & Johnson for finding the culprit was never claimed. At the time, Lewis became associated with the case because he wrote a letter demanding $1 million from Johnson & Johnson to stop the killings. He spent over a decade behind bars for this act of extortion, but he was never tried or convicted for the actual murders. That may soon change. Now, Lewis is back in the news with a book—and maybe, another round of court hearings that may settle the question of his innocence once and for all.

And the Pit, the sunken amphitheater that surrounds the T-stop entrance, seemed the perfect place for interesting encounters.
