So have you ever wondered how a human being can do some of the things they do? I’m sure you have just as I have. I’m a mystery/suspense writer and I love to watch true crime shows (I get some ideas there).
I sit there and I watch these shows and it never ceases to amaze me the things that people can do to each other. I mean really, could you kill your husband with anti-freeze? Well theoretically you could, but would you?
One of the programs that I recently watched the woman put anti-freeze into her husbands diet soda. He went to bed on that Friday night and didn’t wake up the next morning, ah but he wasn’t dead yet. So she tried in desperation to get him to drink more anti-freeze and he just wasn’t able. Being the wonderful wife that she was she thought she would give him a hand with a turkey baster. Yes, that’s right folks a turkey baster. She inserted the baster down his throat and commenced to “filling him up.”
Honestly, I sat there in disbelief. How could any human being do that to another I asked. Then the story got even better (not really) the police were onto her and were unearthing her dead first husband to see if he died the same way so what did she do? Well she poisoned her teenage daughter and left a suicide note. the note said that she, the daughter had poisoned both men and now she couldn’t live with the fact her mother was going to be blamed.
Long story just a little shorter, the youngest daughter found the oldest daughter unconscious and called for help saving her sister and the truth finally came out. But the mother never admitted what she had done, no she maintains to this day that she’s innocent.
I ask you who could poison two men watch them die painfully and slowly and then position their own daughter to pin the blame on her?
Murder is a matter of the heart, not a matter of guns. People will find ways to kill one another if they want to. The old adage “where there’s a will there’s a way.
