Edme Castaing (1796 - 6 December 1823) was a French physician and is thought to have been the first person to use morphine to commit murder. Castaing was born in Alen on, France, the youngest of the three sons of an Inspector-General in the department of Woods and Forests. He went to school in Angers where he was an outstanding student winning many prizes. He graduated from the School of Medicine in Paris becoming a doctor in 1821, by which time he had fathered two children with the widow of a judge. He was under financial pressure, which became further exacerbated by a friend's debt of 600 francs, for which he had vouched in 1818 and which became due in 1820.show more
