Not necessarily. This is probably a coincidence as in a completely unrelated trial in Montreal Quebec a cardiologist who stabbed his two infant children to death, and who had admitted to the killings was found not to be criminally responsible for killing his kids! The verdict was rendered on Tuesday. The jury found there was no criminal intent because of his anxiety and depression.So as long as I can hide the body long enough for the body to decompose, I can get away with murder because there will be no evidence? Great.
Source: Toronto SunTurcotte, 39, has admitted to stabbing and mutilating son Olivier, 5, and daughter Anne-Sophie, 3, on the evening of February 20, 2009.
The children's blood-soaked bodies were found in his rented home in Piedmont, in the Laurentians region north of Montreal. He had recently separated from his wife, Isabelle Gaston, who is also a doctor.
Prosecutors say Turcotte acted out of anger and a desire for revenge against Gaston, who had just begun an affair with one of their friends.
But the jury appeared to have accepted defence arguments that Turcotte was not capable of criminal intent because of his anxiety and depression as well as suicidal thoughts triggered by the separation.
The defence also claimed Turcotte was severely intoxicated from drinking window cleaner prior to the killings.
I've always liked the smell of window cleaner but never realized it has potential of getting high. Thinking about it however, how very dumb, and also mysterious, is it true? This guy was a cardiologist, surely he would have had access to much more sophisticated substances for offing himself, if indeed that is what he had intended? I think this has to be the worst part of both these trials. The ability of people to blatantly lie and get away with it. I'd be worried that people who are outraged at his may be thinking of taking justice into their own hands.Oh great. Now window cleaner is going to be all the rage for kids to get 'high', there'll be a ton of deaths, and then window cleaner will get banned.
Our windows will never be cleaned again.
Well, since we're all being honest here, I've always liked the smell of gasoline, spray paint, white out, pvc pipe sealant, WD-40, magic markers... wow, why the ---- am I sitting here at work? I should be at home huffing some dangerous chemicals, killing off some brain cells right about now.I've always liked the smell of window cleaner

Then don't ask, if you watch TV you should know.to lazy sometimez to goolge xD
Agreed. Depending on the lawyer that you can afford. She obviously must have had a good legal team to defend her, to have got her off, either that or a really bad prosecutor who was trying her case.It's sad really...She should have been found guilty of murder. I don't care how scared you get, you don't bury your child and then lie for a month that she was with a nanny and then go to another lie that she was kidnapped. 6 months that little girl was buried and she knew where too. Just goes to show you that you can get away with murder now-a-days.
