Think you have the worst mother-in-law ever?
Does she criticize your weight, your housekeeping, or your child rearing philosophy? Well, yours has nothing on Angela Costarakis’ MIL, 70 year old Diana Reaves Costarakis of Middleburg, FL.
According to an AP article and police report from Jacksonville, FL Sheriff’s Office, Costarakis offered an undercover officer $5000 to kill her daughter-in-law. She met the officer at Home Depot on Wednesday, I guess thinking he could pick up whatever tools he would need while he was there, and told him that if he didn’t kill her, she would.
After being arrested, Costarakis told police that her daughter-in-law was a drunk, a bad mother, and was leaving her son and taking her 6 year old granddaughter to Denver.
Angela Costarakis, seemingly bewildered, told WJXT that her MIL’s statement wasn’t true, and that “I am beyond sad and it breaks my heart because it messes up the family.” Angela added “I have compassion. I don’t want to see anyone spend the rest of their life in jail. However, I’m still dealing with it. I just found out. I have not wrapped my head around it.”
Angela, I agree that’s a pretty messed up family, and personally feel like you are being way too generous. On the bright side, you won’t have to listen to your mother-in-law make sarcastic comments about your lumpy turkey gravy on Thanksgiving, because she is being held without bail in the Duval County Jail.
