You know, even if this woman didn't go to prison, we wouldn't trust her to be our pediatrician!

Dr. Stephanie Russell was a popular pediatrician in a small town in Kentucky. She had a fully decorated office Disney Subjects. Sounded like a nice woman…until she was charged with murder-for-hire. Dr. Russell was arrested back in May 2022 after she allegedly tried to hire a hitman to kill her ex-husband. Apparently she was angry with her ex, Rick CrabtreeThey were awarded sole custody of their two children. But the murder didn't work. It turned out that the person she spoke to online – and agreed to pay $7,000 to kill Crabtree – was actually an undercover detective FBI Agent. Oops! She is now facing one count Using interstate commerce facilities to commit contract killings.

But the case took a very strange, magical turn…

Interestingly, it was the defense that uncovered this strange wrinkle in the case, per Law and crime. They revealed a variety of WhatsApp messages showing that Stephanie did not directly contact a hitman. She tried it first…Voodoo? Witchcraft? We're not sure which one. But she definitely turned to the supernatural.

On the news she only speaks to someone by their name Mother, which she talks about buying a “death spell” for her ex. She asks:

“What is your success rate? Your price? Your guarantee?”

“Mom” then responds with the disturbingly reassuring news:

  • “The success rate for fatalities is 85%.”
  • “Price depends on the number of people”
  • “100% guarantee or your money back”

Ultimately, they receive $580 for a death spell for just one man. With the money-back guarantee? Damn, that seems like a reasonable deal. But that wasn't enough for Steph. The not-so-good doctor asks for more details about the spell, even referring to animal sacrifice and the Afro-Brazilian religious tradition known as Quimbanda. But mom silences her and simply says:

“It's a death spell, my dear, not a love spell. I can’t tell you the details, but I’ll do your job.”

But Dr. Russell didn't stop there. For someone who was willing to believe in spells she could buy, she remained skeptical – apparently determined not to be an easy task. She may have been new to the magic game, but she did what any smart buyer would do. She was shopping.

She sent a message to someone identified only as “Spiritual healer” with the request that she was “looking for a death spell.” He said to her:

“Yes, I will cast the death spell for you.”

She actually got a better deal here, $430, half off upfront and the promise of “100% results in 6 hours.” But Russell refused to pay upfront at all, pleading with the spiritual healer, “Can I please pay later?” I can’t afford to pay without results.”

The Spiritual Healer actually reduces the deposit to $150 up front because the ingredients for the spell must be paid for. The doctor haggles for $50. Great. When Stephanie finally gets the prize she wants, she gives the magician her ex's name and photo. However, she wants one more assurance: that Quimbanda won't be involved. The spiritual healer replies that it will only be voodoo.

That seems to be it. But she turns to a third person passing by.Sk” – this one tells you no, it’s not Quimbanda, but rather “Indian Vedic magic”. But after Stephanie sends the name and photo, Sk actually advises her against using a death spell. Yet she tells them:

“We will only have peace when he dies.”

But Sk warns them that “killing him etc. will harm you and your family as he is protected in some way.” They say that he is actually “into black magic” – and therefore suggest that they ” just buy a banishing spell. Dr. Russell pushes the issue and asks:

“Is there anything you can do to cause death?”

They don't seem to want to touch it. And of course we know where she ended up after the spell didn't work on her – she hired an undercover agent.

Why did the defense offer all this? Isn't this evidence that she tried to pay someone to kill Crabtree, even if it was through unorthodox means? Well, they argue it's evidence that Russell wasn't in his right mind. They argue that she was mentally incompetent to be convicted of the crime she was accused of – essentially because she was crazy enough to try to use magic!

“MS. Russell's mental health was severely compromised, both empirically and clinically, when she engaged in the conduct alleged in the indictment…In March 2022, Ms. Russell turned to self-proclaimed spiritualists for help and begged (with all credulity). Help cast a 'death spell' on her ex-husband.”

We appreciate the legal difficulties, but… will it work? One would You'd have to be crazy to believe a spell could actually work, but then again, enough people believe in all sorts of supernatural things and just call it belief in their religion, so… if she's crazy, then are everyone religious followers? We'll have to wait and see what the court thinks. The trial is scheduled to begin April 22 in Louisville.

What do YOU ​​think, Perezcious readers? Does that make her guiltier? Fewer? Mentally incompetent? Or just eccentric? Tell us what you think in the comments (below)!
