I work with a murderer!!!

So I was at work today, and as I walk into the breakroom with a buddy I know (Dave), when in walks this kinda freaky guy too (Frank, an employee). A guy in Dave's department has been dealing with his mother's worsening condition. The conversation goes like this:

Frank: "Hey, is that guys Mom still in a hospice?".

Dave: "I'm not sure Frank, I haven't heard"

Frank: "Do they have her on a morphine drip?"

Dave: "I'm not sure Frank, I don't know the details"

Frank: "They tried putting my mother on a morphine drip, and I wouldn't have anything to do with that, so I killed her myself. I wasn't gonna have her laying around in pain, so I just put her down"

At this point, I looked at Dave and mouthed "Did he just say he killed his Mom???". Dave, with his mouth hanging open, said "Uh huh". Then...

Frank: "Then I called the nurse at the hospice, she came and picked up the body, and I had her out of my house in less than an hour"

Dave: "I thought a doctor had to pronounce a death if it was in the home, and an autopsy has to be performed??"

Frank (laughing): "I wouldn't be here if that's how it worked, I'd be in jail"..."I didn't do anything Dr. Kevorkian hasn't done"

I later found out that Frank was to, and did, inherit a good bit of money from an inheritance after she died. I wanted to ask him how he did it, but I figured I better leave well enough alone. I try to avoid taking a break when Frank is in the breakroom.

He could be just trying to freak you. It worked on me!

I certainly would NOT tell him what hospital your friend's Mom is in.

Umm, this guy sounds pretty stupid if he is telling the truth. Even if true, it's not something someone would normally go around pronouncing (no matter if the dead person asked for the help or not). Just not your average coffee conversation.

Are you sure he wasn't just joking in some morbid way? Maybe trying to scare you or freak you out as Mrs. Danger implied?

Either way, not someone I would be inviting over to your next dinner party.

Who hasn't killed a parent? That's why you have two of them. It's just like lungs.

Nah, I believe he was serious. He's been working here for about a year, and he's always kinda monotone & serious all the time. He's an older guy, say mid to late 40's, and he's a homosexual...not that that matters I guess. I wouldn't be surprised to see him on the news some day, and the neighbors saying "He was always so nice & quiet"

That's why it was so weird. He usually just sits in the corner of the breakroom, just facing the wall. He'll even ask people to move if they are sitting there. He never really talks to anyone, which made this conversation even stranger.

If you actually think he killed his mom and believe that he could make the news for killing other people someday, don't you think that maybe you should go to the police? I mean, if you really believe those things and he does end up killing someone, you'll bear some of the responsibility for their death if you saw it coming and didn't tell anyone.

When I worked for a television station, I was once covering a local gun show.

As the reporter talked with some people, I stood off to the side with my camera. This extremely freaky looking guy saunters up to me real quiet-like. I was used to people coming up and asking me what I am doing so no worries yet. This is exactly how the conversation went:

Creepy Dude: What are you guys doing here?

Me: Some of the gun manufacturers are being pressured to include mandatory trigger locks. We're here to get gun owners' opinions on that.

CD: You know they don't let you buy automatic weapons here.

Me: Oh, really?

CD: Yeah, you can only buy the parts. That's how my ex-wife framed me. She had her boyfriend buy all the parts and she hid them in my house and called the police.

Me: Ah, interesting. Well I've got to get to work so...
*quickly run away*

The point of the story is I'll never be surprised at what weird people will talk about with complete strangers. And you should turn Frank in for murder.

When my mother was in hospice, my dad confided to me that it was so difficult to see her suffering that he wished he could put her out of her misery. Grief does that to a person.

She died naturally, but it took her a few weeks. She had emphysema and congestive heart failure, and during the last few weeks, she was in such a deteriorated condition that she was unable to evacuate her bowel ... she was that weak.

When you see someone you love suffering, it is natural to want to alleviate it. My dad knew Mom was going to die. Frank knew his mother was going to die. The difference is that my dad confided in his daughter, rather than some co-worker in a breakroom. If I were you, I would suggest that Frank get some counseling to deal with his grief.

Exact same thing, except for my mom it was cancer.

My dad has made me promise to kill him if he gets to that state. Every once in awhile he will cough and our eyes will meet. Then we laugh our asses off.

Referring to it as putting her down and being so pleased that he got her out of the house in an hour doesn't sound like grief to me. Combine that with the large inheritance and it reeks of something more than mercy. I would feel a strong obligation to report it.
