I’m actually sorry to hear that Tom Capano died in prison yesterday of an apparent heart attack but I’m getting ahead of myself.
For those of you not familiar with the case Tom Capano was a well-connected lawyer in Wilmington, Delaware. In the early 1990s, he was having an affair with Anne Marie Fahey. Ms. Fahey was a secretary to the then governor of Delaware. She broke off the affair with Capano and when he tried to get back together with her after his wife left him he shot and killed Anne Marie. Capano stuffed her body into a cooler and dumped her body into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of South Jersey. Her body to this day has never been found. Capano was a smug prick who acted like he would never be arrested let alone convicted. He was originally given the death penalty but that was overturned in 2006 and he was given a life sentence.
The reason that I’m kind of sad that he died in prison from a heart attack is because his family will get to bury him and mourn him properly. That’s something that Anne Marie’s family will never get.
If there was true justice Capano’s death sentence would have been upheld and he would have been shot in the back of the head then dumped into shark-infested waters.
Yeah, I’m an eye for an eye kind of guy.
