There’s probably a lot you could say about this. Women have such huge admiration for famous people.
Andrew Anglin said the other day that there was a 20-year period in history during which every single woman on earth would have preferred to have a fling with Elvis Presley than have a husband. This is absolutely true. If there were a billion women on earth, and 999,999,999 of them were Elvis’ girlfriends, and the only woman still with her husband was the wife of the president, she would feel nothing but jealousy for the other 999,999,999 women.
So of course some old woman in her 60s will poison her husband’s soup if she thinks a handsome famous person told her to do so.
A Massachusetts woman is accused of trying to poison her husband with soup after someone posing as a daytime soap opera star convinced her to do it, police said. The 64-year-old resident of Townsend, about 50 miles northwest of Boston. She has not been charged in connection to the poisoning allegation as police are still investigating the incident.
“I didn’t poison him,” the woman told WBZ-TV, CBS Boston on Monday as she stood in the doorway of her home. “I love him very, very much and I would never try to kill anyone.”
Authorities said the saga began on Dec. 1 when a person posing as as actor Thorsten Kaye, who plays Ridge Forrester on “The Bold and the Beautiful.” reached out to the woman with a request.
“You have to get rid of your husband honey. I need you so much,” the person messaged the Townsend resident online, court documents said.
The woman said she needed to do some thinking, the filings said.
“Making an amazing soup. Special potion. He will be hungry when he gets back. Just enough for him,” she messaged the person, according to the documents,
Approximately two hours later the woman sent another message, “Hubby got back not feeling well. Maybe I can collect life insurance.” The poser responded, “Honey when will that be?” The woman replied, “Don’t know,” according to the court documents.
After 5 p.m. she called 911 for her husband. The report said he was unresponsive but breathing and had a cardiac history. Her husband was then taken to Nashoba Valley Medical Center in Ayer.
The woman also ended up wiring the poser about $4,000, she told NBC Boston.
This is the woman:
Not only did this woman think some rich and famous actor can’t live without her, but she also believed he needed 4 grand from her.
She’s 64, and has probably voted in most elections that happened during your lifetime.
At the hospital, the Massachusetts woman’s daughter became suspicious, police said.
The daughter contacted the Ayer Police Department, telling them she believed her mother poisoned her father, and had been in contact with someone posing as a soap opera star, who scammed her into giving them money, the filings stated.
The daughter went through the messages on her mother’s phone and took screenshots. Among them were messages about the soup, according to the court documents.
When the woman’s husband regained consciousness, the daughter asked him what happened and he told her that her mother made him soup but that it wasn’t very good and that it tasted “bitter,” court documents said.
The hospital did a toxicology test, which came back negative, court documents stated.
When police spoke to the Townsend resident, she became aggressive, the court documents said.
The woman said that she thought she was talking to a Thorsten Kaye “and that she had always wanted to meet a star,” court documents said. She said that she would never harm her husband in any way and that she, “loves him very, very much,” according to the filings.
When two officers tried to take her into custody, she resisted and kicked at one of the officer’s goin area, the filings said. The two officers then put her in handcuffs, and her phone and tablet were seized, the documents said.
Ayer police arrested the woman on allegations of intimidating a police officer, resisting arrest and assaulting and beating a police officer.
The woman’s husband filed for a restraining order against her that was granted on Dec. 4.
It’s in many ways the perfect news story.
And stuff like this happens in America every day.
What an amazing country.
Why are women allowed to vote?
