Los Angeles Chef David Viens Grisly Crime of Passion

Los Angeles Chef David Viens Grisly Crime of Passion


David Viens the Killer Chef

David Viens, a Los Angeles chef, cooked up more than just fine cuisine at his restaurant. Accidentally simmering a marital beef to the point of no return, he confessed to accidentally offing his wife, Dawn, and pulling a not-so smooth criminal move—disposing of her remains by using an illegal recipe.

But wait, there's more drama than a cooking show here! When suspicion souffléd over him, Viens made a grand exit, channeling his inner daredevil by leaping off a cliff, probably hoping to add some luminous lust for life as a distraction. Alas, that leap wasn't the great escape; it was just a prelude to his eventual fall into the hot soup of justice. His story serves as a reminder: even the finest chefs can't turn crime into a palatable dish.
