April Fool's Joke Leads to Woman Accused of Murder

Posted By on Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 9:41 AM

A woman from Kingsport, Tenn. started her Monday, April 1, off with what she thought was a great April Fool's Day prank — then wound up handcuffed and accused of murdering her husband.

According to WKPT, Susan Hudson decided it would be funny to trick her sister into believing she had murdered her own husband. She called her sister and said, "I shot my husband. I’m cleaning up the mess. Let’s go bury him in Blackwater."

Hudson's sister then called another family member, and someone reported the news to the police. Soon after receiving a tip about a possible murder, police surrounded the Hudson's home and put Hudson in handcuffs for the murder of her husband.

"The next thing I knew, there was law everywhere," said Hudson in a video. "The response was excellent."

Hudson then had to explain to police that it was meant to be an April Fool's Day joke on her sister. Her husband returned later, alive and well, so the police let her go.

Watch the video below of Hudson's response to the prank gone wrong from WKPT.
