A New York woman has been charged in the death of her fiancé. The couple, Angelika Graswald and Vincent Viafore were kayaking in the Hudson River when Viafore’s kayak supposedly capsized. He was not wearing a life jacket and soon disappeared from sight. Viafore was missing for nearly a week before he was found lifeless and floating in the River. His fiancé, however was rescued from the River and was wearing a life jacket according to Wikipedia.
In the days when Viafore went missing, Graswald posted several photos of the couple on social media platforms. Noting how heartbroken she was that Viafore was missing in the wake of this tragic accident.
However Graswald has since been arrested and charged with second-degree murder of Viafore. Authorities have suspected that Graswald altered Viafore’s kayak the day they were out on the water so it would fill with water. She has also been accused of intentionally pulling away Viafore’s paddle, which could have saved his life.
Graswald’s behavior has been suspect, putting her at the center of the crime. Her over-sharing of sappy photos coupled with her happy spirit while posting pictures of her doing yoga and going to yacht clubs has not done her any favors. Once Graswald she was arrested, authorities claimed that she quickly associated herself with Viafore’s murder. It did not take long before Graswald admitted to police that she did in fact alter Viafore’s kayak. Witnesses also made formal statements claiming they saw Graswald tip her own kayak after calling 911. Perhaps the most damming piece of evidence was when Graswald told authorities, “It felt good knowing he was going to die.”
