The upcoming documentary Black Widows: Kiss, Marry, Kill on ID will revisit Sylvia Mitchell’s role in the 1993 poisoning death of her elderly and affluent husband Andrew Vlasto. Gypsy Hustle is the name of the programme that will show on the network this Thursday, September 29, 2022, at 9:00 p.m. ET. The official summary of the upcoming episode reads as follows:

“When 85-year-old bachelor Andrew Vlasto meets a mysterious woman at his local diner, he thinks the gorgeous young woman is his perfect match. But, as his life starts to take chaotic turns, his family wonders if a con artist is manipulating him.”

In June 2000, Sylvia Mitchell acknowledged killing Andrew Vlasto, her 85-year-old elderly husband of three months, using a prescription drug to make the death appear as natural as possible. Given that his retirement fund alone was worth $500,000, she said she did so in an effort to steal his money.

Mitchell entered a guilty plea to second-degree manslaughter, grand theft, and perjury, and was found guilty on all three charges. He was given a minimum jail term of five to 15 years. Additionally, it was found that she was a member of the Tene Bimbo Gypsy crime family and had gradually drugged the elderly man with the assistance of her other spouse.

At a McDonald’s on 23rd Street in Chelsea, the stunning 27-year-old Sylvia Mitchell was introduced to the retired, gray-haired Andrew Vlasto. Given that the woman soon began working as his maid for nearly two years before becoming his wife after he proposed to her in 1993, it was pretty obvious that Mitchell got under his skin.

It was then discovered that Mitchell allegedly started delivering drugged lunches to Vlasto in October 1993 to further her scheme to steal him of his money. A few days later, Mitchell took Vlasto to the Bellevue Hospital Center in New York, where it was determined that his deteriorating health was due to a heroin overdose.
