We've all heard it before, right? Someone killing their parents, best friend, teacher, boss, or grandpa for money, or just because. We go through the motions from being shocked to curious to questioning why we've spent the last hour and a half reading every article about the case. But what's so troubling about this specific crime, is not just that an Australian woman named Brittney Jade Dwyer murdered her grandfather for his life savings, but that her act was allegedly inspired by the television show, American Horror Story.
American Horror Story is a pretty gruesome show, with each season revolving around a different side of crime and death with the same cast. In the fourth season, Freak Show, a demonic clown captures children and holds them captive in a broken down school bus, using them as an audience for his tricks before eventually killing them. In the sixth season, Roanoke, a tribe of terrifying woods people play horrific tricks on a family that has just moved into a neighboring house. After watching the horrible crimes committed on the show, it's hard to imagine wanting to carry out some of them in real life - and yet, that's just what this young woman did.
