Snap, crackle, POP!!!!
Police say a California man slipped enough chemicals into his wife’s Rice Krispies cereal last week in attempt to kill her. Fernando Porras, 43, is being held on $1 million bail and is expected to be charged with attempted murder for filling his wife’s bowl of breakfast cereal with Goof Off. Porras’s daughter Fernanda, 17, called 911 after her mother said the cereal smelled and tasted awful.
“She goes ‘something’s in it, something’s in it,’” Fernanda told KCAL-TV. “So I went and picked it up and when I saw what was in the cup, I could smell it and I was like ‘oh my gosh, this is a chemical.’” Porras became a suspect when he excused himself to smoke a cigarette after they arrived at the hospital, and never returned.
“He walked away from the hospital,” Cpl. Randy Schmidt told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. Officers tracked him down and arrested him roughly two miles away.
“It is an unusual case,” Sergeant Dewayne Eldridge told KCAL. “We normally don’t get cases such as this.” The victim, 51, was released Friday morning in good condition, according to police. Porras is due in court on Tuesday.
His daughter expressed shock over the incident. “It’s my dad,” she told KCAL on Saturday. “It’s hard not to think about, you know, why would he do it?”
What was this guy thinking??? SMH.
