It's traditional to marry the person you love, and many people "follow their hearts" when it comes to settling down with a mate. But most people wouldn't engage with someone if that person actually murdered one of their beloved family members. Well, a woman in Argentina by the name of Edith Casas is set to wed the man who fatally shot her own twin sister in 2010!
It's hard to look at Edith's photograph without experiencing at least a tiny feeling of disgust and concern. Even her family is in a state of shock over her decision and have referred to this "marriage" as a terrible betrayal. It's easy to sympathize with her family's sentiments considering this news is being reported literally two years to the very day that Johana Casas was shot dead just days before she was to turn 20. Now her twin sister, who is a model like her sister was, is going to marry the man responsible for this.
Her soon-to-be husband is doing 13 years for the murder, so it's not like they will be spending a lot of time together in wedded bliss. However, there must be some degree of sociopathy that comes with marrying someone who is guilty of killing one of your loved ones. Her relatives are worried that he may kill her next. Well, it'll have to be in at least a decade if he does.
"Victor is not a violent person and I'm not mad. We've got no doubts about what we're doing. We love each other," Said Edith, on being wed to Victor Cingolani.
Well that's interesting. Perhaps there are circumstances to this murder that makes the man not as bad of a guy as he seems? It seems more likely that Edith Casas is either not playing with a full deck herself or is scraping at the bottom of the scumbag barrel for her life partner. Hell, if he's locked up, he won't run off, right? Whatever her reasoning is for entering a state of matrimony with this man, here's to hoping she isn't his next victim.
