Re: OM found murdered
This was like 40 years ago, and I was 10 years old. I had a friend just across the street from my house. I wasn't that close to him as he was one year older than I was, but we hung around time to time. His dad worked for government and was a tall, handsome gentleman but was very stoic and quiet. So much so that even at such young age, I felt it must be very boring living with dad like him. His mom was SAHM and seems always serving his and family's needs. She hardly talked either.
Well, one day I overhead people talking about how his mom got found to be sleeping with another man every weekend for some time then. People seemed shocked. A couple days later, walking back home from school, I saw a group of women, 4-5, surrounding her, kicking and pulling her hair and so on. I was scared and just passed them to come home. It was a small town and there were other people witnessing this. Well, the next day morning, I heard from my parents that she died in sleep. Apparantely, she came home that afternoon, went to bed and never woke up.
The whole town hushed it down and nobody seemed to talk about the incident afterwards. It was weird. The family soon moved out of the town and we never heard about them afterwards. Looking back, I don't think even there was even any legal consequences to those women who did that, as if the whole town kept it down as a town secret. The image still haunts me time to time as she was trying to crawl back home while taking the beatings from those women.
