A Kingsport, Tennessee woman who prides herself on pulling April Fools' Day jokes "all the time" went a shade too far when she told her sister she had murdered her husband and needed help disposing of the body.
"I said 'Helen, I shot my husband, I'm cleaning up the mess, let's go bury him in Blackwater,'" Susan Hudson recalled to 19News' Cody Weddle. "Next thing I knew, there was law everywhere. The response was excellent."
Police had their guns drawn on Hudson's house, as they slowly entered the residence to find the 52-year-old woman having just barely hung up the phone.
She was temporarily cuffed and placed in the back of a squad car, but her husband's return from work helped corroborate her alibi.
