Niaprazine, under the trade name Nopron, is largely used in France as an hypnotic agent for occasional insomnia of children. This compound is available without medical prescription. The first case involving repetitive administration of niaprazine as a drug-facilitated sexual assault is reported. Three children (2 girls and 1 boy) were repetitively sedated and assaulted by their father-in-law between 2002 and 2006. Niaprazine's liquid formulation rep- resents a good potential access to…

Identification and quantification of 35 psychotropic drugs and metabolites in hair by LC-MS/MS: application in forensic toxicology
TLDR
A multianalytes method allowing simultaneous identification and quantification of 35 psychoactive drugs was developed and has been successfully used in several forensic cases, three of which are reported.

A case of abuse in which children were forced to take tablets containing scopolamine: segmental analysis of hair for scopolamine by ultra performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry
TLDR
Seg segmental hair analysis of scopolamine was conducted using ultra performance liquid chromatography (UPLC)-tandem mass spectrometry (MS-MS), which is highly sensitive and specific, and enabled the measurements ofScopolamine at subpicogram-permilligram levels present in the hair segments.
Chemical Abuse in the Elderly: Evidence From Hair Analysis
TLDR
Hair analysis may be a useful adjunct to conventional drug testing in sexual assault, and mass spectrometry/mass spectromaetry technologies appear to be required for analyses in drug-facilitated cases.
A case of drug-facilitated sexual assault leading to death by chloroform poisoning
TLDR
The post-mortem analysis revealed a blood concentration of 833.9 mg/l for the girl, whereas the quantitation of chloroform in various fluids and viscera of the rapist proved that he had recently been handling the solvent.
