Portland, Oregon, 2006. Michael Kuhnhausen, had set out to have his former wife, Susan, murdered.
He hired someone to be a sort of a hitman. But the hitman wasn’t all that good at his job, I guess you could say.
He entered the home of Susan armed with what seems to be one very basic tool of death. The weapon of choice was a hammer.
But Susan saw him coming. She knew he was there. And even though she was savagely beaten, the “hit” would not come.
Susan Kuhnhausen fought off the man with her bare hands. Striking back with the exact same tool of death that was meant to be used on her. She beat the intruder with the hammer and eventually strangled the hitman until he was dead.
The hitman was linked back to the former spouse and Michael Kuhnhausen was sentenced to ten years in prison for the hiring of someone to murder his ex-wife.
As of 2014, Michael was set to be released from prison. Susan was reported (understandably) to be very nervous.
Lesson: Don’t mess with Susan.
