So many years ago, 26 to be exact, in our small little town of West Liberty Iowa, a murder took place.
A young man lost his life while he was sleeping in his bed.
Someone came in and beat him to death with a baseball bat.
The case has ran cold all of these years.
Well today, this afternoon actually, we find out that my husband’s cousin, killed this man all those years ago.
She was dating him and because she thought he was cheating on her, she beat him to death.
It is horrific and shocking to think this woman that we know, that my husband is related to, could do this horrible thing.
By the way people talked they did a lot of drugs back then, and they assumed all these years that it was a drug related killing.
Only now to find out that she killed him.
I guess she was arrested earlier today and confessed to the killing.
She is 55 and married with children and grandchildren.
I still find it so hard to believe.
I’m not trying to be judgmental but how could she live with herself all these years?
How was it possible to carry such a horrible secret for so long?
How did she not feel terrified every single time someone came knocking on her door, that it wasn’t the police coming to arrest her?
I imagine she will spend the rest of her life is prison.
She is a nice woman.
A happy woman.
I just find it incredible and a bit scary too.
Just goes to show once again that you never really know people…….
