I want to know why she does this,
the killer and her inability to problem solve,
like how else can she pay off her credit card debt?
What else can she do when he leaves her,
when he wants to take away the children?
Kill them of course, kill him. Most women
go for the gun because you can keep
your victim at arm’s length, but some
just want them gone. I can recall one woman
who did the deed with the brutal spike
of her blue suede stiletto, her name was
Ana Trujillo and I had to web search
woman kills man with shoe
in order to tell you all this.
