Another Valuable Lesson the Nursing Homes Didn’t Teach: Interrogations are Videotaped

060731_hitrun_hmed.hmedium.jpgIt’s been a year and a half since we originally wrote about the black widow case, a case involving two elderly L.A. women who befriended homeless men, got them drunk, took 26 life insurance policies out on three of them, then had them killed so they could collect the proceeds. A pretty clever scheme for a couple of broads in their 70s. Unfortunately, it didn’t work, and now the blue-hairs are facing the death penalty.

Well, the trial is currently ongoing, and prosecutors released a video on Monday in which the FBI leaves the two women alone in the interrogation room. What they don’t realize, however, is that they are being videotaped. Unfortunately, we can’t embed the interrogation, but you can check it out here, and it features this wonderful gem:

“It’s your fault,” Rutterschmidt told Golay in the tape. “You can’t have that many insurers. … You were greedy. That’s the problem.”

So. Busted.

That Rutterschmidt sure is charismatic in a German sort of way. Whatdaya think -- we wait another 20 yrs and Kate Winslet can round out her career -- Heavenly Creatures to Creatures Heaven or somesuch. I think these ladies deserve feature treatment.
