Spoiler for it would look ingested...

But I agree, my solution doesn't use the wilted lettuce, the grey meat, the spoon, the plate, or the towel.

Did the murder happen earlier "today" (ie, the day of the evening in which Study of Scarlet and Sirloined Letter take place)?

I would be willing to bet that the greying of the meat and the wilting of the lettuce are something that happened as a side-effect and maybe not immediately.  Of course, it could just have easily been time that's passed since the murder.  Alas, I must leave, but I have one more speculation--

i agree with your statement MoMa but to clarify, was thinking Victor had not intended to commence his mis en place but instead gathered the greens and sirloin knowing they would oxidize(?)/turn brown thereby indicating (maybe along with the carving) the culprit. long shot for sure but was trying to think "enigmatically" like That Woman.

also am curious re the towel. why go to the kitchen for that? one does pat dry beef before browning (meant as searing in the juices this time) but i usually use something disposable. if Victor typically used towels for this purpose... another long shot.

still pondering...

After I posted this, I figured it's probably not feasible the way I posed it.  As a vapour, any poison would likely be too diluted to kill anybody--especially kill somebody on the spot.

Spoiler for Arrest...

Would a single dose from a single spoon be enough to kill someone, though? Almost every death from lead poisoning is chronic after years of exposure...

Violet nodded, and her baby blue eyes clouded. “My father, Victor O’Hare, the one whose name is on the sign...he died...he...was murdered.”
 

 

Probably not relevant, just didn't seem right when I read it.  Later references  to "Dad", stupid question I know...are they the same person?
