I followed the link to the original story to find out if there was more information. Most of what I found were pay sites. Mainly interested in the part of the story about the prosecutor wanting a life sentence for petty larceny.

Then upon scrolling down the Life Magazine page I found the story of the radium queen. This led me to:

I too enjoy perusing the additional stories found on the links for the WU posts.
