Mommy Deadliest by Michael Benson

Case Featured On 20/20

Anti-Freeze For A Husband

It looked like a suicide. A man's corpse on the bathroom floor--next to a half-empty glass of anti-freeze. But fingerprints on the glass belonged to the deceased's wife, Stacey Castor. And a turkey baster in the garbage had police wondering if she force-fed the toxic fluid down her husband's throat.

Pills For A Daughter

In desperation, Stacey concocted a devious plan. She mixed a deadly cocktail of vodka and pills, then served it to her twenty-year-old daughter Ashley. The authorities would find Ashley with a suicide note, confessing to the anti-freeze murder. But Stacey's plan backfired--because Ashley refused to die. . .

A Killer For A Mother

Charged with murdering her second husband--and attempting to kill her oldest daughter--Stacey Castor sparked a media frenzy. But when police dug up her first husband's grave--and found anti-freeze in his body, too--this New York housewife earned a nickname that would follow her all the way to prison. They called her "The Black Widow." And with good reason.

It is so hard to believe a wife and mother could do what she did and then deny all of it. She deserves to stay in prison.

The best true-crime books, such as Mommy Deadliest by Michael Benson, introduce you to a world of evil that blows your mind. How could a person do such a thing? This is the story of a woman who was willing to sacrifice her own child to avoid a murder rap. If I didn't know the story was true, I would have thought the notion preposterous, that natural maternal instinct would have rendered such a scenario impossible. A great read.

This was a really good book. I would highly recommend. It always bliws my mind to know there is truly such evil people in this world...even though i know there are it is mind blowing to read about true stories of seemingly normal everyday people who could be your neighbor or friend.
