That’s Not The Erie Canal She’s Smelling

Meet Rachel Kozloff.

Rachel is on trial for killing her boyfriend. Not that a woman needs a reason to kill a guy, but Kozloff’s reason was unique. She claimed she “could smell sex on him.”

Wow, can you gals really smell that? *Reaches for the Irish Spring*

Prosecutors say a northwestern Pennsylvania woman told her boyfriend she had “smelled sex” on him before she killed him earlier this year. Thirty-one-year-old Rachel Kozloff is on trial in the April 12 killing of her boyfriend of eight weeks.

Investigators say Kozloff shot Michael Henry at his Erie apartment because she suspected him of cheating on her. Her then-10-month-old son was in a nearby room.

Police never found the alleged murder weapon but found spent 9mm shells in Henry’s apartment. Investigators say Kozloff had purchased a .40-caliber handgun and a kit to convert it to 9mm. (H/T – Robert B.)

Why do I keep hearing Miggs’ classic line from Silence of the Lambs?

    Also what is interesting is the guy was her boyfriend for 8 weeks. I mean is that some sort of lifetime for this woman who has a 10 mo. old from someone else??

    Whatever happened to kick the guy out and no more “privileges”.

    I just don’t get it.

    Ralph – It’s like shootings nowadays. In the 80′s, if you had a problem with someone, you had a fistfight. Now, just bust a cap in their ass.

      I try to walk or runaway from confrontations. Life is too short to risk it on that type of stupidity.

        I carry a firearm at all times – I can’t afford to get in a confrontation. Carrrying a firearm actually makes me much quicker to turn the other cheek.

      “A well-armed society is a polite society.”

      I fail to recall who said that first, but it is (usually) a valid statement. If boorish people knew they could get shot for being agressive, maybe they’d tone down their behaviour.

    I guess she didn’t like the recoil on the “Foty”, and could handle the 9mm better? Sucks for the former b-friend.

    I see that it happened in Scrummy’s parents hometown of Erie, PA. Another liberal hellhole of a town. The place is a rundown rustbelt small city. I always thank my parents for moving the helloutofthere when they were young.

    Of course.

    I killed the fucking bastard because I could SMELL the cheating on him.

    No problemo.

    Kill whomever you want.

    Just realize: that shit goes BOTH WAYS.

    Cause, of course, it takes TWO to tango.

    I’ve heard this before, that a woman can smell another woman on a man.

    Another reason why hygiene is important.

    Obviously scent isn’t big on a guy’s radar but many of we women know what our man smells like. It was one of the reasons I kept a couple of my husbands’ shirts after he died from cancer. It smelled like him and I found that comforting. That or maybe the baby needed changing…..

      Many thanks, Mate. I’ll remember to give him credit next time.

      Over at Ace’s blog, he links a story in Texas where an a-hole cuts in line on Black Friday, then punches someone behind him who complained. The punchee pulls his leagally carried concealed handgun, and the puncher splits. The man with the equalizer did not have to fire, and didn’t. Just the thought of being carried out of the place horizontally was enough for the a-hole to decide to vacate the premises. The police stated the gun owner/concealed permit holder was within his rights to defend himself, since he was the one being punched.
