A scorned lover decided to take matters into his own hands when his girlfriend dumped him for another man. In a chilling series of events, the man decided to end the life of his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend because he couldn’t bear to see her with someone else.
Angie Van Huel of Iowa met the man of her dreams, Justin Michael, back in 2013. They immediately fell for each other that Angie was so sure she and Justin would get married.
Two months into their relationship, Justin finally popped the question to Angie. Just like that, the happy couple became engaged to be married, much to the delight of their friends and family.
One person, however, was not very pleased with the turn of events. It was David Moffitt, and he was Angie’s boyfriend before she met Justin.
David and Justin both worked at Wells Fargo. While David and Angie were going out, however, the latter met and fell for Justin. This prompted her to break up with her then-boyfriend David via a text message.
The heartbroken ex-boyfriend, however, could not leave the happy couple alone. He soon confessed to his therapist that he was having “murderous thoughts”, which he later acted upon.
David carefully planned how he would end Justin’s life. He started Googling “love triangle murders,” “how to get away with murder,” “St. Anthony confession times,” “food that resembles the human skull,” and “what does hell look like,” among others.
Finally, David started spying on Angie and Justin’s house. He then purchased a gun, as well as acquired fake IDs to change his identity.
On the night of May 8, 2014, David barged into the couple’s house and staged a robbery. He then proceeded to the master’s bedroom, where he found Angie and Justin asleep. Without a second thought, David shot the man four times, ending the latter’s life.

David was later on convicted of the crime he committed. As of writing, he is currently serving a life sentence without parole.
