Stacey Castor (born July 24, 1967) is a resident of Clay, New York and a convicted murderer. In 2007, she was charged with second degree murder, second degree attempted murder, and offering a false instrument in the first degree. She was found guilty of poisoning then-husband David Castor with antifreeze in 2005 and attempting to murder her daughter, Ashley Wallace, with a drink of crushed pills with vodka, and orange juice. She is suspected of having murdered her first husband, Michael Wallace. Castor met Michael when she was 17, and in 1985 they married and had their first daughter, Ashley, in 1988. In 1991, they had a second daughter, Bree.Castor was employed by an ambulance dispatch company, while Wallace worked nights as a mechanic. Stacey claimed she was “best friends” with Ashley. The couple grew apart and in late 1999, Wallace began feeling ill. He died in early 2000. Doctors told Castor that Wallace died of a heart attack.
In 2003, Castor married David. In 2005, at 2:00 p.m. one afternoon, Castor called the sheriff’s office to tell them her husband locked himself in their bedroom following an argument and was not responding to his cell phone. Unable to get a response, Sergeant Robert Willoughby kicked in the door of the bedroom, found David dead and near his body were a container of antifreeze and a half-full glass of bright green liquid. The coroner concluded David committed suicide by consuming antifreeze, but when police found Castor’s fingerprints on the glass of antifreeze and located a turkey baster with David`s DNA, they suspected Castor engineered her husband’s death by force-feeding him once he became weak. The investigators exhumed Wallace’s body. Antifreeze poisoning killed Wallace. On Ashley’s first day of college Castor invited Ashley to go home and drink together. Ashley agreed because Castor was not only her mother but her “best friend.`The following day, Castor offered her a “nasty-tasting” drink she refused but eventually drank because she trusted Castor. Seventeen hours later, Ashley was found comatose on her bed by her younger sister.Castor made the 911 call. Ashley’s sister found a suicide note beside Ashley.The note was Ashley’s “murder confession”. Potentially fatal painkillers were in Ashley’s system. When Ashley awakened she said the last thing she remembered was her mother making her an alcoholic drink. She told the officers she did not write the note and was confused about their accusations. watch tragic end for black widow`s first love
In 2007, Stacey was arrested for second degree murder in David’s death and for attempting to murder Ashley and frame her for the murders of David and Wallace. Ashley was 11 at the time of her father Wallace’s death. Given evidence of the evolution of Castor’s illness, they concluded Castor fed her husband antifreeze through the baster before trying to make it look like a suicide. On February 5, 2009, Castor was found guilty of second degree murder in the poisoning death of David and of attempted second degree murder for overdosing her daughter Ashley with drugs and vodka. watch did black widow kill two husbands
