"Hell hath no fury like that of a woman scorned," wrote English poet William Congreve many years ago.
Although it is believed the life-long bachelor was "light in the loafers" and preferred guys to gals, he certainly nailed the truth with his immortal line above as to the perils of lost or unrequited love.
Shannon Griffin, a gray-haired, dried-up, vengeful woman with two handguns and a terrible temper, took "justice" into her own hands and killed her husband's paramour with three slugs to the head.
WANTED TO LEAVE UGLY WIFE FOR BEAUTIFUL MISTRESS
Retired Air Force Col. Roscoe Griffin had tossed his unattractive wife overboard after having an affair with the younger and much better-looking VA Hospital "shrink."
Everyone that met Dr. Irina Puscariu commented on her beauty and magnetic personality. The 46 year-old native of Romania, appeared years younger than she was, while her killer, at 52, looks like a 65 year-old.
Col. Griffin wanted out of the marriage, and bluntly told "wifey" he was going to keep on seeing his gal pal. That set off a murderous rage in the scorned spouse and so she drove to Gladstone, Mo. where the psychiatrist lived.
As soon as Puscariu answered her doorbell, she was shot three times with a handgun at point-blank range. Her elderly mother, Aneta, looked on in horror.
When the Kansas Highway Patrol picked up Shannon Griffin on U.S. Rt. 35 in Newton a few hours later, the cold-blooded killer gave up without a struggle. She admitted her crime and said she did it to "protect" her estranged husband from "that evil woman."
ADMITTED KILLER "SHOT WRONG PERSON"
There's a good possibility at her murder trial, Griffin will plead guilty as to mental defect.
But let's take a look at the planning that had to go into pulling off the front door ambush. Shannon had two guns, in case one didn't work, and needed to drive 250 miles from Great Bend, Kan. to get to Missouri - plenty of time to think it over and turn back. She fired three times, not just once, to make sure her victim was dead.
Col. Griffin may have inadvertently exposed his lover to serious danger and eventual death by being so arrogant about his intentions. He had to know he was dealing with a deranged woman who no longer lived with him but was not about to "share" him with anyone else, much less a younger and more attractive woman.
"One of our female readers who tipped us to this story, said Shannon Griffin shot the "wrong" person. "She should have put a bullet into him, instead."
