In April of 2005, a “desperate housewife” banged on her neighbor’s door and said her husband had been murdered. She claimed the man who killed him was still in the house. It didn’t take investigators long to figure out that the wife, Martha Freeman, knew the mystery man who had killed her husband. She had been hiding him in her closet.
