The roommate of a Washington man accused of strangling his girlfriend and then trying to dispose of her body in a plastic tub full of acid says the alleged murder was inspired by an episode of AMC's Breaking Bad — the suspect's favorite show.
In the season 1 episode in question — "Cat’s in the Bag" — Walt tells Jesse to eliminate the body of a rival drug dealer in a plastic tub full of hydrofluoric acid, but Jesse uses a regular tub instead, and morbid hi-jinks ensue.
"The only thing I know or feel about it — that was his favorite series," roommate Dean Settle told KREM 2. "That's what he told me. I think he used it as instructions to go do what he was doing to dispose the body."
She also said that Hart suffered from PTSD, which he brought back with him from Iraq, and which made him "a completely different person."
