This week’s American Monster is Jonathan Krupi, who killed his 29-year-old wife, Simonette Mapes-Krapi, in July 2012 while arguing over his Staten Island, NYC, Condor.
Simonette was a dedicated high school teacher at a tough Brooklyn school, and she was glad that her five-year-old husband followed in her footsteps by studying for a master’s degree so that she too could become a full-time teacher.
However, he was plagued by Jonathan’s continued infidelity. He had a strong obsession with sex with prostitutes, which was considered when he was studying for his degree.

Police believe that at some point on July 4 or 5, 2012, Simonet faced his uncertainty against Jonathan. This leads to the argument that the murder was over.
Prosecutors will later argue that Jonathan pushed his wife down the stairs, and when she was helpless and injured, stabbed her 15 times in the back. He then trashed the apartment, hoping police would consider it a domestic attack.

Jonathan then left home to do some work and had sex with his favorite prostitute, Miss Pumpkin.
Jonathan graciously pretended disaster
He returned home and dialed 911 to report the murder. He has acknowledged his acting role as a devastating and grieving husband. Her performance involves wrapping two roses in Simonette’s coffin at her funeral in tears.
At first glance, the murder gangland has been proven wrong in the robbery case; However, as the police dug deeper into the situation they began to see Jonathan lying.
His computer search revealed that he had recently done research on things like cutting the throat, eating the throat, bleaching blood stains and destroying DNA evidence. Unfortunately, there were no witnesses, and the murder weapon was never found.
However, in October 2015, a jury convicted Jonathan Kripi of second-degree murder and sentenced him to 25 years in prison.
In 2019 his lawyers argued that the two search warrants used against him were invalid, then in 2019 he lost the appeal. He has admitted to being a cheating husband but he still insists he is innocent for the murder.
