I missed it when it happened, but a Charley Project reader sent this one in: Dawn Marie Viens‘s husband got convicted of her murder and in March he was sentenced to fifteen years to life in prison.

The defendant, a restaurant owner and chef, reportedly disposed of the body after cooking it for four days “to get rid of evidence.” (To make the flesh fall off the bones perhaps? Certainly that would do it…)

Pretty awful.

Although, for what it’s worth, Mr. Viens has since retracted his confession. And shut down his restaurant.

    Meaghan, rendering a body in liquid for four days, especially if it was cooked under pressure, would reduce most if not all of the human tissue to a fatty mixture.

    I don’t think he had the talent, cooking tools, or proper materials but if a acid or caustic was added its possible the victims bones would have dissolved as well. Pressurized cooking at over the boiling point with a very low(acidic) PH could do it in less then a day. You would be left with a aqueous solution, and not much else.
