On November 11, 2012, Jake Nolan accompanied his cousin, psychiatrist Dr. Pamela Buchbinder, to a New York Home Depot where Buchbinder purchased a mace; 24 hours later, the hammer became key evidence in a crime that ended with Nolan and Dr. Michael Weiss in the hospital.


Dr. Buchbinder and Jake Nolan can be seen, top right, in a New York Home Depot the night before Nolan attacked Dr. Michael Weiss – Buchbinder’s ex-lover. Buchbinder has not commented on why she bought the hammer.
