Jessy Kurczewski

Jessy Kurczewski allegedly poisoned Lynn Hernan, a family friend, with eye drops and stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from her. Kurczewski was charged with one count of first-degree intentional homicide and two counts of felony theft in the 2018 death of Lynn Hernan. Prosecutors say Kurczewski killed Hernan, whom she was caring for, and staged the scene to look like a suicide by drug overdose. Hernan reportedly died after drinking a water bottle mixed with 6 bottles of Visine. Authorities found a Pewaukee woman unconscious in a recliner on Oct. 3, 2018, with crushed medication and prescription bottles. Kurczewski had called to tell police that her friend was not conscious or breathing. The death was ruled a homicide when the Waukesha County Medical Examiner found in the victim's system a fatal amount of tetrahydrozoline, the main ingredient in eyedrops.
