Suspected Poisoning Plot Massachusetts Woman Allegedly Takes Deadly Advice from Fake Soap Opera Star

“Massachusetts Woman Suspected of Attempted Murder in Alleged Poisoning Plot Prompted by Fake Soap Opera Star: Police Records”

According to police records, a 64-year-old Massachusetts woman, Roxanne Doucette, is under investigation for suspicion of attempting to poison her husband with tainted soup, allegedly following instructions from an individual posing as actor Thorsten Kaye from the soap opera “The Bold and the Beautiful.” The Townsend Police Department incident report outlines the accusations, naming Doucette’s husband as the alleged victim and her 40-year-old daughter as a witness.

Despite not being formally charged in connection with the poisoning allegations, court documents detail how Doucette engaged with the fake soap opera star online. On December 1, the imposter urged her to “get rid of your husband,” claiming a need for her assistance. Doucette allegedly responded by indicating her intention to prepare a special soup for her husband and later suggested the possibility of collecting life insurance. Subsequent messages revealed suspicious exchanges between Doucette and the fake profile.

The situation unfolded when Doucette called 911 for her unresponsive 73-year-old husband later that day. Hospitalization followed, and Doucette’s daughter, becoming suspicious, contacted Ayer police, alleging her mother’s involvement in poisoning her father. The daughter provided screenshots of the incriminating messages, leading to further investigation.

Although a toxicology test on the husband yielded negative results, the daughter expressed concerns about the limited substances tested. Doucette, confronted by police, claimed she believed she was communicating with a celebrity and wired about $4,000 to the imposter. She vehemently denied harming her husband, expressing love for him.

Despite her protestations, Doucette was arrested by Ayer police on charges of intimidating a police officer, resisting arrest, and assaulting an officer. She was released with conditions, including a restraining order from her husband, a mental health evaluation, and GPS monitoring. Police are collaborating with the Middlesex County District Attorney’s office to determine whether additional charges related to the poisoning allegations will be brought against her.
