Vanity Fair Article Features Orange County Murder Mystery

Indie writes: Vanity Fair Magazine has a sizable article in its May issue entitled “The Black Widow of Virginia.” It’s about the owner of Mt. Athos (a large estate in Orange County) who was a “duPont relative” and well-known community member. He was found dead in November 2001 with a stomach full of drugs. Speculation started swirling immediately after that put his second wife, a former hospice nurse, in the center of the drama. Side note: For all interested in celebrity comings and goings, mentions of Albemarle celebs are made briefly to describe what this area is kind of like. The article also mentions that former county residents Jessica Lange and Sam Shepard apparently have purchased a farm in Orange recently. As a backdrop to this murder mystery, the article also details nicely the southern traditions that are part of the fabric of local country life. Michael Shnayerson wrote the story.
