This horrific story has us simmering mad!
Chef David Viens was convicted Thursday of murdering his wife, Dawn, and then literally BOILING her body for four days!
David pled not-guilty to murder, maintaining his wife's death was accidental. He claims he tied her to the bed one night in 2009 and duct taped her mouth closed but was surprised to find her deceased in the morning.
The slow cooking of her body, however, the Chef freely admits to masterminding. After letting her marinate for days, he disposed of her remains through the kitchen of his El Lay County restaurant, Thyme Cafe!!
Most of the remains, we should say…
Apparently the 39 year-old man kept the skull as a souvenir! GROSS!
"[The skull was] the only thing I didn't want to get rid of in case I wanted to leave it somewhere… [It's] in my mother's attic."
In the midst of David's trial last year, he threw himself off an 80 foot cliff in Rancho Palos Verdes. His suicide attempt was unsuccessful, but it forced him to watch from a wheelchair as the jury returned a guilty verdict.
Yelp gives Thyme Cafe three stars.
