ABC 20-20 airs bizarre double-murder plot or ex-spouses in Texas, before trial


ABC 20-20 presented a murder for hire plot in Houston that is one of the most bizarre ever, the most detailed link is here in a story by Gwen Geffen, et al.

An established veterinarian. Valerie McDaniel, after a divorce, fell in love with Leon Jacob, who was a medical school graduate from the Caribbean.  As with a similar story on Dateline (May 18, 2017) about a different case, sometimes young doctors don’t work out well in residency and then go down into spirals. 


McDaniel would commit suicide by jumping from a balcony of her condo, after having said her gradual involvement in a double-murder for hire plot was insidious. 

The suspect in the episode does seem to indicate psychopathic personality disorder.

It’s unusual for news magazines to present cases like this before conviction.  The defendant maintains his innocence.
  
The heterosexual world seems to have a lot of these “Orient Express” plots.
