Maybe they had been acquitted or they told you in confidence of their terrible deed. Maybe it happened years after you knew them. Either way, spill it!
Have you ever known someone who killed a person?

Yes. She did 15 years for killing her boyfriend with a hammer while high. Shes been out for a while and seems fine now. But, I would never eat anything she cooks.

My great grandfather. He killed his brother in a fight (not premeditated) and his father (premeditated) to take control of his father’s estate. He got away with both.
He was a horrible person, the only person I remember being afraid of as a child although I never interacted with him, just saw him. My grandfather (his son) despised him.

One of my dear friends killed her father. He was in end-stage Alzheimers, had gotten very violent, was kicked out of assisted living memory care after less than a week because of violence against staff and other patients. Her mother, who had already cared for her dad (early-onset Alzheimers) for nearly 15 years, begged her daughter (my friend) to help her do it. They used the plastic-bag-with -draw-cord-and-helium method (sometimes called the suicide bag). He was completely non-verbal and unable to communicate at that point, and, as I said, in a constant state of agitation and violence - but I'm sure she'll be haunted by it until her own death. Sometimes life doesn't present us with pretty choices.

I got to be friends with a neighbor's friend who hit a pedestrian who walked in front of him at night, on a road with a relatively high speed limit. Not a highway, but not some neighborhood street w. a 25-mph limit.
He said it was over before he knew what happened, the truck didn't look that bad when he got it stopped and got out so he was hopeful for a second or two, but when he saw the guy in the street, it was obvious that he was dead.
He said he was pretty shaken at the time and for a short while afterward, didn't feel haunted, distressed, vastly changed by it.

A cousin bludgeoned and stabbed his own mother and father to death. He’s currently serving two consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole in a California penitentiary.

My alcoholic, white trash uncle killed a guy by smashing a bottle on his head during a bar fight. He got off easy (only a few months of prison) because witnesses testified that it was the dead guy who provoked him.

I was doing a play in NYC in the late 80s, sharing a dressing area with the other male actors. One older actor always sat next to me and we were chummy. He had Broadway credits, and I'd seen him on tv a few times. He was a crusty, cool guy who after getting to know me told me he'd killed a man and done time. He then admitted that during a prison blackout, he'd killed again on the inside, a guy who owed him cigarettes (which are prison currency), but of course he didn't get caught for the second murder.
He's really old now, but still alive and working.

I remember you mentioning your cousins, in a previous thread. Not the details about the husband and child being murdered, too, though. Horrific!

Yes and then the charges were dropped because he confessed when he was high on hallucinogens. It's a cold case now and it shouldn't be. His best friend knows all the details and may have been involved but the police don't know about him or care. The friend has been living in a van going from state to state under the grid ever since this happened. I always feel this is an ace up my sleeve if I ever get arrested for anything. I can tell what I know and get the ball rolling again.

Yes. Ex Girlfriend killed Ex boyfriend while their three kids were in the house. I knew them both since we were teens and they started dating. She stabbed him once in the heart. He had started dating a new girl and never looked better. She tricked into him into coming over and watch the kids while she went out clubbing. She never went out and killed him instead. She claimed self defense, insanity, domestic abuse. She got off with 5 years probation. Her mother was a very good family friend too but all relationships were destroyed after the murder once people took sides. No one has seen her since. She's hiding.

Knew one guy who was an accountant for one of the big name firms who was officially away on business but snuck back to town to duct tape his wife to a chair in the garage, torture her and then set the house on fire. He then caught a red eye flight back to where he was supposed to be. (This was in the '80s, when such a thing wasn't so easy to track down as it would be today.) The wife died of smoke inhalation; the house smoldered for a few hours before actively turning to flame but she obviously died a horrible death. There was a lot more to the story. The guy's name was Dennis Bulloch. He claimed the wife wanted kinky sex but suffocated accidentally so he set the house on fire to kill them both but lost his nerve. Had a really good defense attorney because he was only convicted of lesser charges and was out in a few years,never to be heard from again.

A neighbour accidently ran over a child. It was a rural area and the boy ran in front of the school bus as soon as he got off it. The neighbour, who was only 18, was travelling under the speed limit but couldn't break in time. The driver was devestated, he'd known the kid since he was a baby, so was the bus driver. The boy's parents were very forgiving and let everyone know they held no grudges.

Had an acquaintance die of a weird death. She was at a party after a wedding with her husband and allegedly hit her head on a stair going down while he was holding onto her. He claimed she was drunk and thus needed help going down the stairs. However, other people there said she wasn't as intoxicated as he was making her out to be.
It came out after her death, that he had been seen previously being "rough" with her and had also been trying to pressure her into swinging and other kinky type sex.
Things also took a weird turn when only a few months after her death turned up with a new love interest that he happened to work with. They and another couple (who were her friends) had previously scheduled a trip to Vegas prior to her death. The couple had asked him repeatedly, hey we cancel this blah blah blah. He insisted for them all to go and then showed up with this woman. It was obvious, they had been fucking around prior to her death.
Oh, and he was suddenly very flush with money thanks to shaking down the homeowners where it happened and having a very large life insurance policy on a stay at home mother. He then preceeded to buy lots of lands down in Northwest Arkansas.
The absolutely strange part in all of this is when he demanded my friend return a breast feeding machine she had been lent by the dead wife. He told her, he may need it again in the future.

Also remembered regarding r31, Bulloch was out on bail when he took his parents' car and left it in the middle of a bridge over one of the local rivers, with a suicide note. He was tracked down some months later in California through one of his female friends with whom he'd been in regular contact when he called her from a pay phone.
He and the wife had been married only a matter of months and he had kept the marriage secret from friends and co-workers. The wife's parents had died young and left her the house and quite a bit of cash. She had also been a corporate exec and had a large insurance policy.
I knew him from the gym and lots of different events. Always struck me as a pretentious creep but harmless. How wrong I was.

Knew a family down in San Antonio back about 15 years ago-- husband, wife, three young boys. The wife was an executive with Southwestern Bell and the husband was something of a computer nerd without a regular job. She disappeared one day and it turns out the husband had killed her when he learned she wanted a divorce. He dumped her body in a junkyard. He finally confessed and pled guilty so there was no trial. The young boys all got adopted out across the country and split up into different families. Always wondered if they ever saw their brothers again.
