Fark.com, that indespensible source of news, has brought to my attention the troubling case of Nancy Kissel , an American resident of Hong Kong who murdered her husband. She first laced her husband’s milkshake with sedatives and then bludgeoned him to death with a lead ornament.
This modus operandi upsets my aesthetic sense. One should either poison one’s husband and make a clean killing or one should bash him up and see him die in pain. This innovation achieved neither purpose. I hope it does not become a trend.
