On Thursday - 10 days after United Kingdom authorities launched a murder investigation into Sturgess' death - police identified two suspects in the poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and daughter Yulia, a source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN.
"He definitely said to me that they found this bottle of something and Dawn sprayed it on her wrists and that he picked it up and broke it somehow - and that's how he got it on his hands", Rowley told Sky News.
Earlier Thursday, Britain's Press Association cited an unnamed person with knowledge of the investigation as saying that police believe they have identified "several Russians" as the perpetrators of the March attack, through study of closed-circuit TV footage.
On Wednesday, global chemical weapons experts completed their investigations in Amesbury, where they sought to identify whether the substance that poisoned the couple was from the same batch used against the Skripals.
Security minister Ben Wallace wrote on Twitter: "I think this story belongs in the "ill informed and wild speculation folder".
The results may help inform the process to establish conclusively whether the novichok was from the same batch that was used in Salisbury to poison the Skripals.
Sturgess died on July 8, prompting police to open a murder investigation, while Rowley has regained consciousness and is in stable condition. He was freed in a spy swap in 2010 and settled in the UK.
Police say the source of the Novichok which killed Sturgess was a small bottle they found in Rowley's house, and more than 400 items have been recovered as part of the murder investigation.
Health officials on July 20 said 45-year-old Charlie Rowley "is well enough" to be discharged from Salisbury District Hospital and that his release into the public "creates no risk to anyone in the community".
Ms Sturgess fell ill on the morning of June 30 and died eight days later in Salisbury District Hospital, while Mr Rowley was left fighting for his life after also becoming contaminated.
They have since been discharged from hospital. Claiming that the substance used in the attack had been a Novichok-class nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union, London rushed to accuse Russian Federation of being involved in the incident. We wish him the best with his ongoing recovery.
