When Clara Harris found out that her husband David was cheating on her with his receptionist, she did everything she could think of to win back his affections, including dying her hair and scheduling breast implant surgery. When that didn’t work, she hired a P.I. to tail him and his new lover to a hotel in Houston. To add insult to injury, it was the same hotel she and David had gotten married in.
When she found out where the lovers were staying, she drove her Mercedes Benz to the hotel, attacked David’s receptionist, and then drove her car into David to knock him to the ground before running over him three times. The act of passion earned her the name “Mercedes-Benz Murderess.”
