Man Kills Designer for Criticizing Home

ordinarypeopleThis will hopefully make all those “know-it-all” designers choose there words carefully when commenting on potential clients about their existing decor (this man was obviously completely wacko, but still).

A South African man told a court how he hacked to death his interior designer because she criticized his decor, local newspapers reported on Tuesday. Jose da Silva, 37, pleaded guilty to murdering 47-year-old Beatrice Harrowyn in 2001 after inviting her to his new house in a classy suburb north of Johannesburg. “We went through the house and I told her what I wanted. She did not make any nice comments about my place so I went to my garage and fetched an axe,” the Star newspaper reported him as saying.

“I killed her because she reminded me of an old school teacher whom I hated very much.”
