different purge the desire to kill their spouses in 1991 Paula poisoned his wife to death with carbon monoxide he then brought her body to his mistress's house from there Stewart waited patiently as Halle proceeded to gas her husband to death to conceal the homicides he prompt their bodies in a car and Stewart's garage passing off the murders as a dual suicide despite having literally killed to be together Stewart and Halle went their separate ways each remaining silent about their murderous betrayal how we'll be married and established himself as a seemingly straight-laced family within his

the brain : Hall received a 21 year prison term judge required co-conspirator hazel Stewart to spend a minimum of 18 years behind bars five the diary confession the year 2012 kicked off a cavalcade of losses for Diane's thoughts family her husband died without warning seemingly of natural causes five months later her autistic son Sean died from what were believed to be seizure related complications and the following year her daughter Sarah needed emergency medical attention for a flu-like melody that turned out to be organ failure Sarah survived but not before experiencing brain damage despite the abundance of tragedy Diane seemed strangely unperturbed at her husband's funeral she was almost jolly and the death of her son failed to evoke much emotion at all when her daughter Sarah was admitted to the hospital Diane shocked doctors with glib jokes and talked about vacationing something was clearly a mess the Scott family's pastor noticed some of this oddball behavior and reached out to law enforcement it didn't take interrogators long to coax a confession out of Diane she had been systematically poisoning her family with flavor or less antifreeze that she acquired online she felt her husband needed to go because he was prone to violent outbursts she found her son's autism too onerous and she deemed daughter Sarah who had accumulated significant college debt too much of a financial drain she intended to spare her other two daughters out of love through ultra questioning Diane maintained that she acted alone but police soon discovered a diary that suggested otherwise the diary belonged to her daughter Rachel who had clandestinely helped her mother plan and execute the murders the idea she would reveal and where writings was to eliminate the entire family until just she and her mother both received life sentences for their crimes for the closet many children go through a phase of compulsively checking their closets for monsters but the children of Veronica Aguilar knew better that's because for three years they never had to question what was on the other side of the closet door it was their brother according to authorities the 39 year old Aguilar trapped her son Jana tan inside closets where she fed him little more than sedatives to keep him docile to avoid detection she purportedly swore her remaining three children to secrecy even as two of them were forced to sleep next to Jana fans makeshift prison at night she successfully concealed the truth from concerned grandparents teachers and apparently even thrown husband by convincing them to on a time who showed signs of autism lived at a Mexican institution it seems that nobody outside of a galore and her children knew about Jana tans cute circumstances until his tortured body gave out in 2060 buggin the eleven-year-old had shrunk to a skeletal 34 pounds he was losing hair and awash with sores angle are called her husband to let him know his stepson had died purportedly still in the dark he began preparing himself for a solemn journey to Mexico before Aguilar unveiled Jana tans actual location her husband then left the house and contacted police despite the physical evidence against her the testimony of her children and a documented history of child abuse and neglect Aguilar has maintained her innocence let's hope that whatever the outcome of the case justice is served three the other children Darren West spent ten years of his life believing he only fathered three children with estranged wife Megan Huntsman but in 2006 after serving time for drug offenses he was released into an appalling new reality while making arrangements to stay with Huntsman West discovered something on speakable in her garage had an infant it was far from the only one between 1996 and 2006 Megan Huntsman had secretly given birth to seven of West's children and shelled six of them to death the seventh was stillborn her motive was gut churning lis simple Huntsman was hopelessly hooked on meth and knew she couldn't nurse both a child and the addiction so for socking adoption as a viable alternative she murdered the newborns had turned her garage into a makeshift graveyard reticent by nature Huntsman was able to hide the pregnancies and their ghastly after meds without changing much of oak her general demeanor the revelation came as a gut punch to those who knew Huntsman even so much of her immediate family jumped to her defense depicting Huntsman as a troubled soul who heard out of inconsolable fear the courts were not so forgiving in 2015 Huntsman received six life sentences three of which had to be served consecutively to the troubled son on a January night in 1971 13 year-old Charlie Brandt launched into a homicidal rampage without warning he shot his father in the back and unloaded a succession of bullets into his pregnant mother as she bathed he then shifted focus to his older sister Angela luckily his gun jammed seizing her opportunity Angela tousled with the uncontrollable Brandt all the while reminding her brother how much she loved him the tactic worked and he relented rands father barely survived the shooting his mother wasn't so lucky because of his age prosecutors declined to charge him in his mother's death psychologists too were at a loss unable to pinpoint the motive or melody that made 13 year-old boy want to slaughter his whole family eventually the brand's resolved to bury the whole ordeal in the past awkwardly ignoring its existence unfortunately it wasn't the last time and when kill in 2004 Golf Channel executive Michele Jones thoughtfully welcomed Brandt her uncle by marriage and his wife Terry to stay with her in Orlando while a hurricane blew through their part of Florida the three successfully weathered the storm together nothing however would spare the trio from Charlie Brandt in an act of unimaginable savagery ran stabbed his wife seven times in the chest beheaded Jones and cut her heart out afterward he hanged himself friends and investigators alike were utterly flummoxed those who knew Charlie pegged him as a shy oddity not the vicious killer to many the slayings seemed as unpredictable as they were tragic that is until Angela brand came forward her revelation led investigators to a startling theory Brandt may have been a serial killer in hiding subsequent investigations linked Brandt to the 1989 murder of Sherri parish on how many other skeletons brent was buried and his past might never be known one the Colonel's daughter in many ways Victoria Montenegro's upbringing was an exercise in propaganda and revisionist history she grew up believing that her father was a valiant figure who sought to keep the nation's fabric on soiled by enemies during Argentina's dictatorship Lieutenant Colonel Zurin and tetons Liffe spent countless hours filling Montenegro's head with the odious details of tortures and death supposedly necessitated by patriotism in reality colonel tex Liffe had helped the Argentinean military steal hundreds of babies from families deemed adversarial to the state during the country's dirty war Montenegro was one of those babies her actual parents broke and Hilda Montenegro had been abducted abused and assassinated on Colonel Tetons lips quarters at the time she was just four months old seizing the opportunity to raise the monthly Negroes child as his own the colonel falsified documents to hide her identity the truth didn't emerge until 1992 when Colonel Thames live was charged with child abduction a court named Montenegro as one of his victims she responded with fierce denial but Colonel texif himself would confess in 2000 characterizing his crimes as an Africa save children from bad upbringing for a while Montenegro clung to that narrative but as she dug into the past the Colonel's account seemed more like a grim fairy tale ultimately she wouldn't testify against Colonel Thames live in court helping to put him behind bars
