Elderly Women Allegedly Kill Homeless Men For Money?

Criminals are very imaginative. Since the well of quirky court cases never dries up, I decided to do a reoccurring post highlighting some of the most outlandish. The Court of Liberty is now in session. I'll be like Nancy Grace, just less scary.

The Crime: Olga, 75, and Helen, 77, are accused of murdering for financial gain. They allegedly killed two homeless men by running them over with a car.

The Motive: The elderly women wanted to collect $3 million in insurance money coming from plans they had taken out on the men's lives.

The Whole Story: Prosecutors allege that Olga and Helen found the two transient men at a Hollywood Church. They set them up in an apartment, and supported them for two years. Meanwhile, they took out several life insurance policies on the men's lives. Eventually, they drugged their transient friends, and proceeded to run them over with a car, making it look like a hit-and-run.

My Verdict: These women were getting pretty up in their age. Was the long-term investment of supporting these men for two years, only to kill them, a risky financial move? How could they be sure they would see their return? OK, all joking aside, it's outrageous if these women in fact took advantage of — and killed! — these vulnerable victims.

Your Verdict? Tell me in the comments!

"Was the long-term investment of supporting these men for two years, only to kill them, a risky financial move? How could they be sure they would see their return? OK, all joking aside," I would have never placed a joke in that blog at all. Cold blooded murder is not funny no matter how you present it. These ladies, old or not, should be found guilty and placed in a maximum prison like all criminals that commit these types of crimes. They took their time, 2 years, to set this whole thing up. So if evidence cannot prove otherwise then like I said, they should be placed in a maximum prison.

The women in my family tend to live to their 90s, so I could turn to crime in my 70s and probably live long enough to enough any profit - as long as I didn't forget where I put it. If you're still feeling relatively feisty in your 70s, I don't think you turn down opportunity (however illegal) just because you might die soon yourself.

Thank you for being a friend travel on the bum and back again your aim is true your a pal and a confidant (or else i would kill you too) They needed to watch a couple more Matlock and Murder she wrotes and maybe a couple of Monks to at least hatch a plan that didnt lead right back to them!
