“I love being single.” That’s what cops say Floridian Jennifer Hearn, posted to Facebook after allegedly murdering her husband Cliff and burying him in a hog pen.
Late this summer, Jennifer Lynn Hearn announced on Facebook that her husband had left her again but that she had found someone new. The parents of three daughters had separated before, then reunited several times.
But about six weeks ago, it seemed over for good. Hearn told friends that her husband had moved out to live with a girlfriend. And within weeks of his departure, Hearn also found a new love.
“Wow. I am so glad one person walked out of my life so others could walk in,” she posted on the social-networking site. “I love being single.”
But the 40-year-old mother was lying. In the backyard of her home, inside a hog pen behind a storage shed, 2 feet of soil covered the decaying remains of 41-year-old Carl “Cliff” Hearn.
Cops say at some point, Jennifer Hearn told someone what she did and it made its way to others. According to sheriff’s Lt. Tod Goodyear, Hearn then told investigators that she had shot her husband at the height of a nighttime argument, then buried his body.
Hearn, has been charged with second-degree murder.
