Did you know the most common method of murder when it comes to wives offing their husbands? I could have have one of these up every day if I listed everytime a woman kills using poison. This is the first time I have seen eye drops though. I have known for a long time Visine will kill you or at least damage internal organs. That old mid 2000s movie The Wedding Crashers started an urban myth that Visine would just make you sick. Nope. It will kill ya. So with that in mind let’s get on with a tail as old as time.
An Arkansas woman was recorded on tape talking about poisoning her husband to death by putting Visine eye drops in his drink for at least four days straight, police said. Clearly she wasn’t a master criminal.
Tina Glasco, 56, of Paragould, Arkansas, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with attempted murder in the first degree. Looking at her picture if I was married to her I would probably be happy to die via poison.
Local investigators first learned of Glasco’s alleged attempt to poison her husband on Tuesday, KAIT-TV reported.
‘Officers collected an audio recording of Tina making statements about poisoning her husband with Visine eye drops with the purpose to cause serious physical injury and death,’ according to the police affidavit.
‘In the recording, Tina stated she had been putting a large amount of Visine drops in her husband’s drinks for over four days.’
Don’t ever let your wife make your drink, fellas.
Authorities have also charged Glasco with conduct constituting attempt.
Bond for Glasco was set at $100,000 by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office. She is scheduled to appear in court on January 4.
The active ingredient in Visine is tetrahydrozoline, which was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1954.
The chemical is part of a family of drugs called imidazoles. It can be found in other over-the-counter medications such as Murine Plus, Altazine, and Clarine.
In small doses, tetrahydrozoline, a decongestant, is considered safe when applied to the eye.
But large doses taken orally could put one at risk of slow heartbeat, hypothermia, a coma, or even death.
