We need to talk about the upcoming TLC documentary, “Half-Ton Killer.” If you’ve seen TLC’s other “Half-Ton” docs (“Half-Ton Mom,” “Half-Ton Teen,” etc.), this is a different beast. Yes, Mayra Rosales does weigh a half-ton. Actually she weighs 1,100 pounds and is considered one of the heaviest women in the world. But this is not about Mayra’s struggle to lose weight.
In 2008, Mayra was charged with capital murder when she confessed to accidentally killing her 2-year-old nephew by sitting on him and crushing him to death. I don’t want to give anything away, but I was compelled to read all the spoilers about how Mayra’s case played out. You can read them here if you’re as fascinated as I was. Basically this is what I’ll say: the boy’s autopsy report did not corroborate with Mayra’s confession, which threw a wrench in the murder trial. That’s all I’m going to tell you.
We’ll have to find out the rest of the details when the doc airs on October 10th. Check out the preview below. [Jezebel]
