A North Carolina man has been charged with using Visine eye drops to kill his wife. Joshua Lee Hunsucker, 35, was arrested last week and charged with first-degree murder.
Stacy Hunsucker’s death had been ruled a heart attack when she died in September 2018. She was 32 and the mother of two children, now 5 and 6, when she died.
Joshua Hunsucker, a paramedic, was charged with her murder on Friday. A blood test “detected very high levels of tetrahydrozoline which is one of the active ingredients in certain eye drops,” prosecutor Jordan Green said in court, according to Fox 46 Charlotte.
Hunsucker was ordered held on a $1.5 million bond. Prosecutors believe that life insurance money was the motive for the crime. The North Carolina Department of Insurance opened a fraud case after Stacy’s mother reported her suspicions about her daughter’s death.
