Not all marriages are meant to last. Some people pick the wrong partners and stick around a little too long.
It’s unfortunate, but there is an ever-widening gap between the marriages that last through good and evil, sickness and health, and all that other stuff promised before an altar.
A lot end up in divorce. Some are clean, simple, just a quiet separation where two adults live their own lives again. Not everyone can get used to it.
Some splits are much messier. The messiest, unhappiest endings of all come with the death of one spouse and the inheritance of all of their goods to the other.
It’s a cliche for a reason, insurance scams and arranged “accidents” are still things. However, they require meticulous planning and direction to go off without a hitch.
In Dalia Dippolito’s case, her entire plan hinged on avoiding one crucial pitfall which landed her in jail.
10 /10 New York Girl, Florida Woman
Dalia was born in NYC as Dalia Mohammed, but her story begins with her in Florida.
There she went to Catholic school, a public high school, and got a real estate license before, of all things, she settled on being a call girl.
This profession was how she met with her future husband and target, Michael Dippolito.
9 /10 Meeting Mike
Michael was a man of reasonably stable reputation but with a dark side to his success.
He was a conman with several failed ventures in which he intentionally siphoned money out of investors for himself.
They met when he called her from an escort service while his wife was out of town for the day. So he was also a cheater. Under the surface, they were perfect for each other.
