Chef Confesses to Accidentally Killing Then Cooking His Wife

Ok, so…Today in WTF News, the trial has resumed for a chef who told investigators that he accidentally killed his wife and then boiled her body for four days so that he could get rid of the evidence. 

AP reports that David Viens plead not guilty to killing his 39-year-old wife in late 2009. Jurors on Tuesday heard a recording played in court of Viens telling sheriff’s investigators they couldn’t find his wife’s body because he cooked it until little was left but her skull.

“I just slowly cooked it and I ended up cooking her for four days,” Viens, 49, could be heard saying on the recording.

Viens gave detectives the interview from his hospital bed in March 2011, after jumping off an 80-foot cliff upon learning he was a suspect in her death. Viens, whose injuries from the leap have him attending his trial in a wheelchair, told authorities that he stuffed his wife’s body in a 55-gallon drum of boiling water and kept it submerged with weights.

He said he mixed what remained after four days with other waste, dumping some of it in a grease pit at his restaurant in Lomita, and putting the rest in the trash.

What started all of this, you may ask? Well, Viens said he had noticed money missing from the restaurant he owned and suspected his wife. When he arrived home that night Viens said his wife got angry with him and he forced her onto the floor where he wrapped her up and put a piece of clear duct tape over her mouth.

He said when he awoke four hours later, his wife was dead.

You can Google around for the full story, there are tons of reports. In one report, he said he didn’t know what he did what he did and that he just got violent all of a sudden. I don’t believe that. I think there was always some kind of crazy there. Either that, or he was on drugs. This is ridiculous. By the way, her body was never found.
