Sobbing, Fran speaks to Marta:

Fran: There's this Hallmark movie called Deadly by Surprise with Danica McKellar. And in it, she plays this wife who's getting poisoned by her husband,
but he's doing it little by little, so she doesn't know it and she goes crazy, and she kills herself. And my cousin, who's a receptionist at the medical examiner's office, she says that stuff totally happens. It's not even 3% as crazy as the stuff she's seen come through there.

What does "It" in "It's not even 3%" mean?

    Does she mean One spouse poisoning the other is not at all crazy compared to things which are happening at medical examiner's office ?

    If, say, there's a scale of craziness from 1-100 and the stuff she's seen come through there is 100% crazy, then the wife's suicide is less than 3 or 3% on the scale of craziness.
    Cross-posted.
    The it is the idea or story that a husband could force his wife to kill herself.
