Taiwan’s high court on Wednesday ordered two brothers — one of whom is dead — to pay $1.8 million over a train derailment they staged in an unsuccessful bid to kill the older man’s wife and claim an insurance payout.
You read that right: They tried to kill her by derailing a train. It didn’t work, so they poisoned her with snake venom in the hospital. Then one of the brothers committed suicide.
Sadness and weirdness galore.
