Jason Hart Uses 'Breaking Bad' Method of Killing to Murder Girlfriend

A man was such a fan of AMC's hit show, "Breaking Bad," that he decided to use it as his inspiration for killing his girlfriend.

In the show, Walter White has a specific way of killing people that is supposed to break down the body and leave little evidence behind. 

By soaking a body in acid inside of a plastic tub, the bodies on the show disintegrate into blood.

Similarly, Regan Jolley was found dead while soaking in a plastic tub full of acid in Nine Mile Falls, Wash. Her boyfriend, Jason Hart, was arrested on murder charge. They were only dating for six weeks.

Hart allegedly choked Jolley to death before he used the acid method to dispose of her body. His family has came forward and revealed that he was addicted to methamphetamine, which is the same drug that is the center of "Breaking Bad."

In the show, Walter White says, "You see, hydrofluoric acid won't eat through plastic, it will however dissolve metal, rock, glass and ceramic."

At the scene of the crime, unsurprisingly, were "Breaking Bad" DVDs. In the DVD player was the episode where White explains the acid process.

Hart also bought a chemistry book before Jolley's death. The man who discovered Jolley's body in the garage also stumbled upon the book.

Dean Settle, the man who found her, said "Breaking Bad" was a huge influence on Hart.

"The only thing I know or feel about it  that was his favorite series," Settle said. "That's what he told me. I think he used it as instructions to go do what he was doing to dispose the body."

Hart's trial will start in August.
