Author Of ‘How To Murder Your Husband’ Arrested For Allegedly Murdering Her Husband

Multnomah County Sheriff’s office

Nancy Crampton-Brophy may have gotten a little too involved in her work. The author of works like “Hot To Murder Your Husband,” “Hell on the Heart” and “The Wrong Husband,” was arrested on Sept. 5 for — you guessed it — the murder of her husband, 63-year-old Daniel Brophy.

Daniel Brophy was found dead inside of the Oregon Culinary Institute in Portland back on June 2. He had worked at the Institute for decades.

The couple was married for 27 years.

Crampton-Brophy addressed her husband’s death at a vigil shortly after his murder.

“Daniel was one of the few people I’ve ever known who did exactly what he wanted in life and loved doing it,” she said, via NBC News. “He was a person who did what he loved: he loved teaching, he loved mushrooms, he loved his family.”

NBC News adds:

Crampton-Brophy describes herself on her website as the author of “fiction books under the Romance Suspense genre.” Among her works is a series with the tagline “wrong never felt so right,” which includes titles such as “The Wrong Hero,” “The Wrong Brother,” and “The Wrong Husband.”

“The Wrong Husband” is about a woman who hatches a plan to run away from her abusive husband while on an anniversary trip overseas with him. Her escape efforts are sidetracked when the cruise ship they are on wrecks off the coast of Italy.

After an investigation, Oregon police decided to take 68-year-old Crampton-Brophy into custody. It was then that they announced his wife was believed to be a suspect in the murder.

“Detectives believe Nancy L. Crampton-Brophy is the suspect in Daniel C. Brophy’s murder,” said Portland police, via the Sun Sentinel.

Crampton-Brophy remains in jail for unlawful use of a weapon and murder.

Despite her arrest and the fact that she is currently behind bars, her sister told ABC News that she believes Crampton-Brophy is innocent.

None of us believe it,” said Holly Crampton. “It’s craziness and it’s just not true.”

What a twisted world.
