Discovery Channel's Medical Detectives - the case of Joann and Bobby Curley
Bobby is described as a 'friendly guy, loved by the people around him' (they say these things often of Devoted Style persons.) Joan is described as a different character; 'they had little in common' (although Joann was good at hiding her true nature in the first period after their marriage). Joan played rock music, was described as 'headstrong'and allways wanted to have things her way and was already devorced before marrying Bobby. Incredibly; two months after the marriage, she started putting rat poison into Bobby's ice tea filled thermos bottle. Rat poison contained Thallium at that time which builds up in the body of the victim until it has reached a critical level; after which suddenly the person's hairs fall out and he gets incredible pains. There is no antidote so Bobby was doomed.
In court she bluntly admitted 'I killed him for the money' ($300.000 life insurance). She was so egocentric, fearless and un-empathic that she continued her poisioning job even when Bobby was dying in hospital; she gave him a cold drink with rat poison. When nobody of Bobby's family could stand seeing him suffer; Joann didn't have any problem with that. At the funeral didn't shed a tear. Bobby's family didn't like her; she lacked charm.
The profile of this woman who committed a rather clumsy murder because of her greed, would most likely be the Anti Social Disorder (Oldham's Adventurous Style.) It's interesting to see that the basic psychopathic motives exist in woman as well as in men; but the relative lack of physical power and of male hormones makes the anti-social drive appear in ways which you won't expect. In daily life female ATS women would harras their victims more emotionally than physically.
