The pharmacy linked to the nation's deadly outbreak of meningitis is owned by two brothers-in-law who brought different but complementary skills to the business.

One's a pharmacist, the other a risk-taking businessman who made his mark recycling old computers, fishing rope and mattresses.

The pharmacy _ the New England Compounding Center _ is now under scrutiny after making a steroid solution that apparently became contaminated with a fungus. It has sickened more than 180 people, killing 14.

The business was founded in 1998 by Barry Cadden and Gregory Conigliaro. Conigliaro had already built a successful recycling company. Cadden held a degree in pharmacy.

Neither has commented since the outbreak. A spokesman says they are focused on aiding the investigation into what happened.
