Twin Tangled in Topsy-Turvy, Tormented Twisted Love Triangle

Okay, now even my sense of disbelief is reeling over this one. Of all the intriguing and dastardly killers I’ve written about, this woman has to be one of the weirdest of the bunch.  Edith Casas, (pictured left), however, is not the killer.  She is the gorgeous, identical (monozygotic) twin sister of Johana Casas, who was murdered not too long ago by a man named Víctor Cingolani, among others. So far, Edith seems normal. The 19-year-old model was found with two gunshot wounds to the head, her body dumped in a nearby clearing. Now here is the abnormal Edith:

The 22-year-old Argentinean Edith celebrated this Valentine’s Day by marrying the man, being Cinedithgolani, who is currently serving a 13-year prison sentence for murdering Johana. And how’s this for a honeymoon? After the civil ceremony, which took place in Pico Truncado, Argentina, police escorted the groom straight back to his jail cell, while angry crowds had gathered outside the courthouse to pelt the newlyweds with eggs and stones. I know.  What a shock.  The couple didn’t even get to consummate the marriage.  Outrageous.

Cingolani maintains his innocence, though the court found him to be a “willing participant” in the murder. His new bride believes him. “I’m going to get married to the person I love and not the person who killed my sister,” she said, alluding perhaps to some sort of metaphysical porthole the rest of us have not yet discovered. Naturally, the developments are not sitting well with Casas’ parents, who tried to block the marriage by claiming their daughter was mentally unstable.

The couple, who have been together for five years, had planned to Wed last December but a judge, Gabriela Zapat, ordered it to be suspended at the last minute followinJohana Casasg a request by the twins’ mother, Marcelina. The couple, who have been together for five years, had planned to wed last December but a judge ordered it to be suspended at the last minute. Psychological testing showed no indication of “mental dysfunction” and the nuptials were allowed to proceed.
Cingolani’s sister and brother-in-law acted as witnesses during the 20-minute ceremony but Edith’s relatives, who have disowned her, shunned the service.
For me, both of them are dead,” the bride’s father Valentín Casas told Clarín newspaper in December. “Johana, (pictured left), is with God and Edith is with the Devil.”

Casas’s new husband appears to be missing a few chips in the old self-awareness department himself. “I didn’t think the wedding would have so many repercussions worldwide,” Cingolani told local reporters outside the courthouse yesterday. Seriously? I have doubts as to Cingolani’s sudden decision to wed Johana’s sister: I believe their intention is to sway the court’s decision in favour of Cingolani during his future appeals. And Edith’s decision to wed Cingolani, as freaky as it seems, is not entirely unheard of. There are many women groupies  of men who have murdered, and those who have raped and murdered, including serial killers. I call them death groupies.  Clearly, Edith falls into this category, with the added, sick twist that she married the man who killed her sister.  This woman is young, incredibly beautiful, and hails from a good family. You really can’t tell a book by its cover…no matter how appealing.
