Murder Via Spider

There are plenty of ways to murder another human being, and the last thing I want to do is give you any new ideas. However, it cannot be denied that lately a rather novel method of committing multiple murder was about to be completed by a man in whom we can only consider…well…disturbed.

An unnamed woman thought it would be a good idea to spend some quality time with a seemingly trustworthy stranger. Needless to say she became suspicious of her initial trust towards the man when he started displaying abnormal behavior, specifically multiple personality disorder. Not only that, but the woman seems to have known about his mental affliction, but gave him a chance anyway, even after learning that he had spent some time in jail. Although this was probably not the wisest move on her part, and the man may have been very charming, well…parts of him anyway, she continued to entertain his company until things came to a head.

Eventually the ex-con allowed one of his more anti-social personalities show and proceeded to threaten her family with being tied up and killed one by one with a brown recluse spider. Luckily, the woman was able to flee before this man’s sick fantasy became a reality. She called the cops, and despite the authorities locating his car, the unstable ex-con is still at large.

Does a brown recluse spider possess enough lethal venom to kill multiple people in a short amount of time?
