Murder by Xanax
In this first case, the ex-wife is found dead in a bathtub. The defense claims the she committed suicide. Cuts to her wrist and legs, which resulted in heavy bleeding, the amount of Xanax in her system, and then drowning all played a part in this woman's demise.
But was a woman with tickets for a long awaited vacation suicidal or just a problem for her ex-husband?
One fact that stood out was that she didn't have a prescription for Xanax, but her ex-husband, the pediatrician did. You can read about the case at the link below.
In this next case, the alleged killer took Xanax and tried to use it as a defense.
Interestingly enough there is even a study asking the question 'could murder be caused by Xanax?"
What do you think? Could a drug drive you to murder, or simply give you that needed push to do the unthinkable? Would you be at fault or would the drug?
