Man Fakes Murder To Get Divorce
This seems like a needlessly elaborate way
to get your wife to ask for a divorce:
Teddy Akin, 28, told his wife he had killed a hitchhiker and stolen his wallet, and later repeated the same story to investigators after police arrested him.
He claimed he hit the man on the neck, causing him to gasp and make a gurgling sound.
He said he buried the body in a forest.
Police eventually found the allegedly murdered man alive and astonished.
Mr Akin admitted that his murder confession was bogus, a police spokesman with the Sheriff's Office told the newspaper.
He told investigators he was having problems with his wife and was hoping the murder story would encourage her leave him.
He said he had found the wallet in the street.
I guess 'Honey, I want a divorce' never occurred to him.
