Does tragedy run in families?  In the case of the Augustine family, they seemed to have more than their own fair share of unexpected deaths.  In August, 2012, 32-year old Dallas Augustine shot and killed her wife Jessie McCaskill before turning the gun on herself.  Six years earlier, Dallas’s step-father Chaz Higgs had been accused of murdering her mother Kathy Augustine with a fatal drug overdose. 

Chaz was a hospital nurse involved in the care of Kathy’s sick husband Charles Augustine when Charles died. Just weeks after his death, the marriage of Kathy and Chaz raised a lot of eyebrows.  Kathy’s sudden death just three years into her marriage with Chaz had police suspicious not only that Chaz had murdered Kathy but that perhaps he had had something to do with the death of her husband.

This story received a lot of publicity, partially because Kathy had been a prominent politician in Nevada and she had undergone impeachment proceedings for violating state ethics laws.  Chaz would claim that her political opponents were responsible for her death.  By all accounts, Kathy was not an easy person to get along with.  There were plenty of people who disliked her, but did anyone have more of a reason to want her dead than Chaz did?

Join us at the quiet end today for a story of murder too strange and complex to be fiction.  In Tainted Love, we’ll learn about Kathy, Chaz, and the events leading up to their love affair and Kathy’s untimely death.
