12. Geraldine Kelly
‘Geri’ was known for being a pretty tough woman; she had several attack dogs and had a penchant for tattoos and snakes. Even so, no one would have expected the startling revelation she made to her daughter while in the final stages of her cancer in 2004. For years, Geri’s children, who had been estranged from their mother since their early teens, had believed exactly what she had always told them; their father and Geri’s husband, John T. Kelley, had been killed in a tragic car accident.
In reality, the truth was much in fact much more sinister – Geraldine had actually shot him in the head at some point during the early nineties and hid his body in a freezer which she had then kept in a storage facility. The police recovered the body and were able to identify him by his well-preserved physical appearance as well as his tattoos.
