Tennessee Woman’s April Fool’s Prank Draws in Police

52-year-old Susan Tammy Hudson certainly has a penchant for pulling pranks and this April Fool’s her target was her sister.

According to the Huffington Post, Hudson phoned her sister Helen and confessed to her that she had just shot her own husband dead and asked her sister for help in disposing of his body in Blackwater.

Hudson’s prank worked far better than she imagined because a relative reported the homicide to the Kingsport Police Department.

Shortly thereafter, police arrived in force at Hudson’s home and took her into custody.

Susan tried to clear the matter up, but she was held in custody until her husband returned home alive.

Upon her release, Hudson was now in the news for her April Fool’s prank-gone-wrong, but took the whole matter in stride.

She told local TV news reporters that the response from the local police was swift and appropriate.

“The response,” she said, “was excellent.”

“I was doing an April Fools’ Joke,” Susan Tammy Hudson, 52, told WKPT 19. “I said, ‘Helen, I shot my husband, I’m cleaning up the mess, let’s go bury him in Blackwater.'”

“All’s well that ends well” goes the adage, but the same did not hold true for 18-year-old Tori Wheeler of Oklahoma who told her boyfriend she was pregnant.

When he responded poorly the news, she got into an argument with him and slit his throat with a knife. He’s recovering in the hospital after getting seven stitches. She’s in jail on an assault charge.
