Florida for more than four to sponsor for more than 2000 years we thought Egyptian queen Cleopatra and did her old life with the cobra bite but now on new book is blowing the lid off that long held belief in fact affair -- May have been murder.
Pat Brown as a criminal profiler -- the author of the brand new book the murder of Cleopatra a look at histories greatest cold case she joins us live from Washington good morning -- -- good morning so this is a fascinating topic how does somebody become into Sanders and you're you're doing some studying on this and you thought -- there's more to this story -- people -- -- actually I did the Discovery Channel show called mysterious death of Cleopatra in 2004.
And that's -- I can mount that you know this next story just doesn't hold water is this one of these kind of crazy stories that I really don't know why we believe -- for all these years.
But I think no one -- really stopped at analyzed all the details and then after I looked at Madison wanted to matter.
I also think she was murdered but during that particular -- I never got time to go into why I never got to go into what Cleopatra was really doing and Alexander.
Right before she got murdered and I police she was trying to escape governorships and she wasn't actually just hiding and cowering in her tomb you know hopeless waiting for -- -- and -- -- and.
Of course -- through history we've thought that she was done in by myself -- reflected.
Tended to -- -- but what's your evidence that to suggest that somebody was out together.
Well first thought -- -- Can I really do not think he wanted to take her back to Roman marchers strived she was a very typical person to deal with it was -- -- really shaky situations where you never know what could go wrong.
And he would rather just have her disappear because -- -- life.
You never -- is going to come out back and bite you.
So the fact is it he wanted her dead but to go and say hey by the way guys.
-- Alexandria info here in -- a big mob and Alexander got very very volatile I just killed off your queen.
Not to greatest story so.
To have her commit suicide served his purpose is quite well and I'm sure he put -- that story about the snake.
And if you actually look into the details which they can people can do -- my book.
There it's really no logic to the fact and snake would've been.
Able to be used Ambien that you don't even all the stupid -- and you're just going out logic though right there's none other I don't know what she -- her.
You know -- -- on us to go though that personally in the history of Qatar which a little questionable call the -- -- first time but he some interesting information and there.
But I also went back I went back to Egypt to do my research I researched.
The architecture I recess and geography I researched the politics are there's a lot of information that goes into building of that analysis -- Just one idea about all she would have done that there's a lot of pieces that go to the puzzle and I -- this up in the book all the different parts of Cleopatra was like what she was really doing how she is trying to flee Egypt even in the last days there's so much in there but I think we're gonna see a completely different story of people are completely different viewpoint once they read the book.
Kind -- and that's that we've we've run out of time but I wanted to get your take on how you think this would change history.
But I am undoubtedly a lot a Pat Brown check up the -- -- the murder of Cleopatra a look at history's greatest Cole's case and a good titles to.
