Oh Yeah, I Killed Dad

Bizarre story coming out of Sommerville, MA.

mother’s deathbed confession led police on Thursday to a dead body in a storage locker freezer, and officials said the corpse may be that of the woman’s husband whom she murdered more than a decade ago.

The woman apparently told her children as she was dying that their father had not died in a car crash as they thought but that she had in fact killed him and that his body was in a rental storage facility in Somerville, Massachusetts

Ryan and I are really wondering about the details here. The woman has since died, but how did she cover up her husband’s death? I’m guessing it wasn’t a close family, he had no one waiting for him and she just told people that the guy had hit the road. When she later told them of the supposed car crash, it was either past the time that they would have had a funeral or the children weren’t interested in attending. So law enforcement was never alerted to this guy’s disappearance.

It’s the sort of gruesome thing you hear about in elaborate murder mysteries.

News reports this morning suggested she told her kids so they wouldn't find the body after she died and wondered WTF was this body all about.
