I Miss Tennessee

Stories like this is why the TV show, COPS always come to Tennessee to film.

Jeff and Martha Freeman seemed like a happy couple, they lived in a tony Brentwood home, were licenced private investigators, and ran a business together. But Martha had a skeleton in the closet, well not really a skeleton, but kept Rafael DeJesus Rocha-Perez in the closet. Mr. Rocha-Perez had been living in the couple's closet for over a month while having an affair with Mrs. Freeman.

10pm Sunday night Mr. Freeman heard snoring coming from a closet and found his wife's lover. He demanded that Rafael leave, confronted his wife, and then left for a walk. Upon his return he was assaulted by Rafael with a shotgun and ended up dying of his injuries. At midnight, Mrs. Freeman called her mother-in-law and told her that Jeff was sleeping and could not talk to her. Monday afternoon Martha went to a neighbor's house and asked them to call the police, who found Mr. Freeman dead.
