Author Wrote "How to Murder Your Husband" And Then Did It!
Novelist Nancy Brophy who penned How To Murder Your Husband has been charged with the murder of her husband, Dan Brophy. Portland Police arrested the 68-year-old author, charging her with murder and unlawful use of a weapon. Dan Brophy, a professional chef, was shot dead at the Portland Culinary Institute on June 2.
Brophy took to Facebook the day after her husband was murdered and wrote:
"For my facebook friends and family, I have sad news to relate. My husband and best friend, Chef Dan Brophy was killed yesterday morning. For those of you who are close to me and feel this deserved a phone call, you are right, but I’m struggling to make sense of everything right now. There is a candle-light vigil at Oregon Culinary Institute tomorrow, Monday, June 4th at 7 pm. While I appreciate all of your loving responses, I am overwhelmed. Please save phone calls for a few days until I can function."
The self-published author also released two books days after the murder titled, The Wrong Husband and Girl Most Likely To.
