A man from Siberia came across a human skull while gardening at his home, and uncovered a dark confession from his wife.
The man had been planting potatoes in his home vegetable garden in the village of Luzino, in the Omsk region of Siberia.
After the discovery was made, the man was shocked when his wife calmly informed him, ‘don’t worry – it’s my first husband’ before asking him to rebury the remains.
The 60-year-old woman confessed to her new husband about how she had allegedly murdered her first spouse with an axe, giving the following instructions:
Bury the remains again, forget about it, and we won’t tell the police.
The unnamed woman allegedly killed her husband 21 years before his remains were unearthed, after ‘he came home drunk and beat me’ at their home, MailOnlinereports.
After digging further in the vegetable garden, police officers came across more bones.
A judge has since placed the woman under house arrest while the criminal investigation is underway.
She now faces a charge of wilful killing with a maximum penalty of a 10 year prison sentence.
A local resident reportedly said:
By planting potatoes this man may have saved his own life.
A new documentary, Dead North, looks at the story of Kelly M. Cochran, who is currently serving a 65 year prison sentence. Cochran was charged with injecting her husband with a lethal dose of heroin and smothering him at their home in Indiana.
According to the IndyStar, Cochran has also been accused of murdering her lover, Chris Regan, before allegedly serving his remains to her neighbors at a BBQ.
According to the documentary’s IMDb page:
In the cold, isolated world of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Police Chief Laura Frizzo launches an investigation into the disappearance of Chris Regan, never expecting to come face to face with a possible serial killer.
