Rosemarie Essa (née DiPuccio) was an American woman who was murdered by her husband, Yazeed Essa. On February 24, 2005, Essa, who was en-route to the movie theater, collapsed behind the wheel, and swerved and bumped into a passing van. She later died at the hospital. Her family immediately suspected Yazeed, who, following questioning by police, fled to Lebanon, and later Cyprus where he was arrested on October 7, 2006. Following a lengthy extradition process, Essa was sent back to the US, and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 20 years on March 9, 2010. Creative Minds video.
