Usually, when Gut Check enters the shady criminal underworld, it's for nothing more shocking than a drunken brawl at a fast-food restaurant. However, this report from AFP (via Eater) takes things to another level altogether.

A man and woman in Sicily allegedly murdered the woman's ex-husband by asphyxiating him...with butter.

See, the clever [sic] couple thought that after the butter suffocated the man, it would melt, leaving no trace of the crime!

Except:
...a post-mortem found remains of the butter in the airways of [victim] Calogero Lo Cocco and the pair were unmasked...
"Looks like he can't believe," says Horatio Caine, putting on his sunglasses, "it is butter."
