It was unbelievable what this woman did to a well respected lawyer who made the rounds of the country club and horse racing circuit. She stole his money, prestige, credit and robbed him of his dignity, his humanity, his family, friends, and ultimately even his life. She sucked him completely dry. Also, it was hard to believe how this man could be duped by this woman and not leave her before she ended up killing him. Older men - beware of the young trophy wife.
A riveting true story of sex, greed, drugs, craven murder and it shocking aftermath.
Great book, a respected attorney was insanely in love with his young wife. But the cheerful, devoted spouse was not what she seemed.
This true murder is as cold blooded as it gets. 8 pages of photos. Truly frightening.
I am a big fan of true crime and biographies and I remember watching this American Justice episode and thought the book was something that the thesis of pyschiatrists dreams
A seasoned investigative reporter takes us behind the scenes of one of the most shocking cases in California history when a greedy and seductive wife brutally murders her devoted husband.
Tavia Williams thought her new stepmother was sweet and charming. Tavia, just a few years younger than 36-year-old Elisa McNabney, was very happy for her father, 53-year-old Larry McNabney. Larry was a horse enthusiast, successful attorney, a pillar of the community, and was loved and admired by everyone he knew. For six years of marriage, Larry and Elisa spent their spare time on the country club and horse racing circuit. It was a perfect life, but it went perfectly wrong. On September 10, 2001, Larry attended a horse show. No one has seen him alive since.
Months after his disappearance, police finally put out a missing persons report. They soon found out that Elisa McNabney was not the person she had claimed to be. A fugitive on the run, Elisa was a con woman who had enlisted the help of a girlfriend to slowly poison her loving husband with horse tranquilizers, in the name of pure greed. Larry was found buried in a vineyard, after Elisa kept his corpse in her deep freezer for months. The only thing more appalling than the horrific murder was the shocking manhunt that followed and the end to this tragic story of deception, murder, and deadly seduction.
