    MO - Mark, 61, & Shaun Staudte, 26, poisoned with antifreeze, Springfield, 2012

    Springfield Woman Accused of Using Antifreeze to Murder, Poison Family . (ozarksfirst.com)
    SPRINGFIELD, Mo.
    ---
    Diane Staudte, 51, has been charged with murder in the first degree for the death of Mark Staudte, murder in the first degree for the death of Shawn Staudte, and assault in the first degree and armed criminal action for seriously injuring Sarah Staudte after attempted murder.

    The case began from an anonymous tip on June 11 and the Springfield Police acted quickly.

    Incidents started with Staudte's family last year when her husband Mark died in the family home in April. Staudte's son, Shawn, 26, then died in the home in September

    After each death, Staudte had an explanation; her husband had been having seizures and her son had flu like symptoms. The Greene County Medical Examiner ruled them both to be natural causes.

    Suspicions were raised, however, when Staudte's daughter was brought to Cox Hospital this June. It was soon discovered that she had been poisoning her own family.

    much more, with a video, at the link

    Yikes. Allegedly joked with hospital staff while visiting critically ill daughter, said she was going to take a Florida vacation no matter what daughter's medical status.
    Que sçay-je?

    Holy Moly......I don't even know what to say about that confession! Absolutely no remorse what so ever! What kind of a person does this?????? My prayers to the victims and those who love them.

    Whoa, did you read the court documents at the link? She left her son dying to go to church.....found him dead when she returned home. Guess she considers herself a Christian!

    Medical examiner ruled both her husband and son as deaths from natural causes. How about doing autopsies and toxicology for change?
    Just my opinion

    How much life ins. did she have on them?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    This woman is cold. How does she come up with murder as the solution to her family being annoying.

    Police report doesn't say anything about life insurance.
    According to that report she poisoned daughter because daughter wouldn't find a job and had student loans. So I am not sure if she had any life insurance on her husband or son.
    Just my opinion

    AND she has a daughter that just finished 5th grade and another in college!!! What were her plans for them? SCARY

    The daughter she poisoned had only graduated college in Dec. 2012 and she had lost her father & brother during a six month period prior to that. Is anyone shocked that she wasn't out seeking her first job after so much loss in such a short time? My gosh...
