A Wisconsin woman has been charged with killing her friend by poisoning her with eyedrops then trying to make the death look like a suicide.
Jessy Kurczewski, 37, was indicted for killing her friend, who hasn’t been identified, after embezzling almost $300,000 from her in 2018.
According to charging documents filed on Monday, Jessy Kurczewski called the police last year after pretending to have discovered the victim dead at home.
She’d put painkillers on the woman’s chest and told police that she was suicidal, but when the police carried out a post-mortem, they discovered that the victim had a lethal dose of tetrahydrozoline in her system, which is the main ingredient in eye drops.
Jessy Kurczewski attempted to persuade them that the victim deliberately poisoned herself by drinking the solution, but she later confessed that she’d brought her friend six bottles of the eyedrops Visine, but said she didn’t believe it would kill her because the friend had already been drinking the liquids.
The police then looked at her bank records and found she’d acquired $290,000. That included about $130,204 that was believed to have been transferred fraudulently by check from the victim to Jessy Kurczewski, according to the complaint.
She’s now been charged with homicide and two counts of felony theft. It’s unclear how she intends to plead.
Perhaps it’s time to make this a prescription medication only. However, there are already lots of over the counter medications out there that’ll kill you if used incorrectly, and they can’t be banning all of them.
And eye drops can kill, who the hell would have known that? Perhaps they would have made a person really ill, and anyone with a brain would have known that, but to have known they would kill someone, well now that’s malice aforethought because she would have had to do some research beforehand, and they put this in the media to give other unhinged people ideas!
And I’m sure to this woman it seemed like a great idea at the time, and she thought there was no way that she would get caught, especially since she deposited the stolen money in her own bank account – what brain cell did she use for that?
This is just a worthless human lust for money, which is the source of all evil, and it should never surprise us that the elevator of human hate has no bottom floor.
