Subject: Jean Harris, "Scarsdale Diet" Murderess, Gone at 89

Written By: LyricBoy on 12/28/12 at 7:12 pm

News wires are reporting the death of Jean Harris, the woman who was convicted of murdering Dr. Herman Tarnower, writer of the best selling "The Complete Scarsdale Medical Diet" book.

I remember when that murder case was the big scandal.  Ms. Harris testified that she did not murder Dr. Tarnower.  No... instead she was trying to commit suicide and accidentally missed herself and hit Tarnower instead.  Several times, apparently, because she had emptied the revolver into ol' Herm.  The jury did not buy her story and she spent 12 years in the slammeroo on a second degree murder rap.
