Murder your husband



June 19, 2022

In a weird development American writer Nancy Crampton Brophy was found guilty of shooting her husband dead in 2018 for a $1.5 million insurance payout. Weirdly enough, Brophy, an American romance author, wrote an essay titled ‘How to Murder your Husband’ in which she pondered various ways in which a wife can kill her spouse. She speculated that a wife who kills her spouse must be ruthless and very clever because she is likely to become a prime suspect. While debating the various ways of murder, she wrote that knives were too personal, poison was too traceable and hitmen were too untrustworthy as guns were messy and required skill. Her late husband was a chef and teacher at the Oregon Culinary Institute and was found dead in the kitchen of the institute on 2 June, 2018 by his students. The prosecutors had built their case with evidence showing that Crampton Brophy had acquired gun pieces in the months before the killing her husband including an extra component that prosecutors said could ensure that the bullets used in the shooting would not be traced back to her gun. Curiously, she wrote that the thing she knows about murder is that every one has it in him/her when pushed far enough. TW
