She was the ringleader of a gang that savagely tortured and then killed a mentally retarded man named Louis “Buddy” Musso. After they met, she lured him to marry her. But she was already married. And then after obtaining several life insurance policies in Buddy’s name, she proceeded to murder him in cold blood.
Her lawyer tried his utmost to change the verdict from capital punishment to something less severe. But the atrocious nature of the crime simply left the judge with no other option except for death by lethal injection.
Suzanne Basso may be slightly mentally imbalanced, but she was clever enough to fool the psychologists and psychiatrists. She had a tendency to pretend a lot too.
Obese, unkempt and given to paranoid thinking, she appeared a sorry sight. Also the woman was partially paralyzed due to a prison beating she claims left her that way. She even said that they planned to sneak a snake into her prison cell.
Even her own daughter testified against her saying that she was physically abused by Basso when she was young. The execution was carried out on Wednesday. Suzanne Basso is among the few women who have faced death row until now.
