Los Angeles (AP)- A chef on trial Tuesday for his wife's murder told sheriff's investigators that they couldn't find his wife's body because he had cooked it for four days in boiling water until little was left but her skull. Los Angeles Superior Court jurors heard David Viens make the statements in a recorded interview with sheriff's investigators that was played in court during his murder trial. "I just slowly cooked it and I ended up cooking her for four days," Viens could be heard saying on the recording, according to the Los Angeles Times. Viens gave detectives the interview as he lay in a hospital bed in March 2011, after leaping off an 80-foot cliff in Rancho Palos Verdes when he learned he was a suspect in the late 2009 disappearance of his wife, Dawn Viens, 39, whose body was never found. Viens, whose injuries from the leap have him attending his trial in a wheelchair, said in the interview that he stuffed his wife's body in a 55-gallon drum of boiling water and kept it submerged with weights. He said he mixed what remained after four days with other waste, dumping some of it in a grease pit at his restaurant in Lomita, and putting the rest in the trash. He said the only significant thing left was his wife's skull, which he stashed in his mother's attic at her home in Torrance. But a search of the house turned up nothing, nor did an excavation of the restaurant. On the recording played in court, sheriff's Sgt. Richard Garcia asked Viens what happened on Oct. 18, 2009, the night his wife disappeared. "For some reason I just got violent," he said.
At least he didn't make her into stew and serve it at his restaurant. Yeah, I'm naughty. What a horrible crime.
Man, I don't believe a word of this. Jumped off an eighty foot cliff in Palos Verdes and lived? Nope. That ain't gonna happen.
It's true - here's a link to the Times, dated yesterday: You are not allowed to view links.

Saying the things he said, ma'am, is one thing; doing them is another.
He really did jump. Here is the story:You are not allowed to view links.

Something must have broken his fall. He did not jump the equivalent of eight stories onto Palos Verde rocks and live. So let's go on to another part of this tale. His wife weighed 105 lbs. To stuff her into a fifty-five gallon drum, he would have had to put her in butt first and force her to the bottom; her legs sticking up on one side, her torso on the other. There would be no room for movent, nor would there be enough water in the drum to cause the body to rise. There would have been no need to weigh it down. I'm not a scientist, so it's not easy to explain what I'm talking about. The business with the head. He told the cops he hid it in his mother's attic; but when they went to his mother's house, it was not there.He did something else with that body.
Oh, I agree with you about the body. He's nuts...we'll probably never know what really happened. I still go with he chopped her up, made her into stew with fava beans and served it with a nice Chianti.
"For some reason I just got violent," he said.
wonder how long they were married before he lost it?Acoording to the ex wife, it only took her about 4 years of marrige to me before she found herself weighing the benefits of killing me vs doing significant prison time. But she was was diffrent kinda chick. lol
