Fisher had fallen in love with Joey Buttafuoco after meeting him at his body shop and she grew increasingly jealous of his wife. So, she decided to kill her.
After spending about 15 minutes talking to Fisher, Mary Jo Buttafuoco finally told her to leave. Fisher then took out a gun, struck Mary Jo Buttafuoco in the head with it, and shot her in the temple. Incredibly, doctors were able to save Mary Jo Buttafuoco’s life, although they could not remove the bullet from her head, and it is still there to this day.
