Stacey Castor was an American convicted murderer from Weedsport, New York. In 2009, she was found guilty of intentionally poisoning her then-husband David Castor with antifreeze in 2005 and attempting to murder her daughter, Ashley Wallace, with crushed pills mixed in with vodka, orange juice, and Sprite in 2007.
In addition, she is suspected of having murdered her first husband, Michael Wallace, in 2000; his grave lay next to David Castor’s until David’s remains were disinterred in 2016 and buried elsewhere by his son. The story made national news, and Castor was subsequently named “The Black Widow” by media outlets. A special two-hour edition of ABC’s 20/20 aired on April 24, 2009, and again on February 8, 2019, to provide the full story of the Castor case.
However, Castor felt that Wallace was her true love. The couple married and had their first daughter, Ashley, in 1988. Further, in 1991, they had a second daughter, Bree. According to Castor, Wallace was very close to Bree, showing favoritism that Castor made up for by becoming “best friends” with elder daughter Ashley. In spite of their closeness with their children, the couple grew apart, and it was rumored that each was having affairs.
