As we are all painfully aware people will commit heinous crimes for no reason ala Steve Stephens. But as we have also come to know, people commit murder for the most inane reasons as well. This brings us to one Teresa Drum.
Teresa Drum was making a casserole dinner in late February, which evidentially wound up on the burnt side which in turn, drew the ire of her husband, Dennis Drum. Some heated words were exchanged about the dinner debacle, and in the end Mr. Drum ended up with a bullet wound in his forehead which lead to his untimely death.
Now, by her own admission Mrs. Drum had consumed seven beers during and around the time she made the dinner. And quite certainly, casseroles can burn, when cooks become innebriated. Another bi-product of consuming that much alcohol, is that people can get murdered, especially when guns get pulled.
Mrs. Drum attempted to say the husband took his own life In his ‘casserole rage’. Mr. Drum was found at the scene by police with a gun in his hand. But typically people don’t shoot themselves in the forehead during these episodes. She also sent a friend a picture of her deceased husband via text asking “What she should do?”. That picture she sent eleven minutes before the police arrived , unfortunately for her, showed no gun in his possession. She even proceeded to take a shower to clean herself before even calling police.
During the commission of dinner and the crime, two of the couple’s children were in the house, though they were not hurt.
Mrs. Drum is currently facing both a Homicide and Tampering charge.
