Love makes people do crazy things. There are plenty of stories of people who are so star-struck in love that they go to desperate lengths to be accepted and admired.
It’s a whole sub-genre of movies, of what a guy or girl is willing to do to get the romance they want from the person they need in their life.
In those stories, they often have happy – or at least respectably friendly – endings. In real life, the obsession that drives people to love too much is a dangerous thing.
The nasty reality is that the one thing most people are all too willing to do for love is kill.
Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander had that kind of bloody, unfortunate relationship.
She loved him so much she went to all sorts of lengths to be accepted, but when he didn’t feel the same way, she decided to cut things off – in the most gruesome way imaginable.
