    The man whose mummified remains were found hidden in wife’s garden

    The skeletal remains of John Sabine, who went missing in 1997, were discovered just weeks after the death of his wife Lee Sabine at their flat in Beddau

    It wasn't until weeks after Lee's death from cancer in 2015 that the true horror of what happened to John Sabine came to light.

    An ill-advised practical joke resulted in his decayed and partially-preserved skeleton being discovered in the same garden that Lee had spent so many hours tenderly transforming.

    As a community was left reeling with the discovery it quickly transpired that the odd lady with green fingers was a murderer who had killed her husband with a stone frog.

    This is the story of how one woman kept a killing from the world for almost 20 years.

    I remember this, it's a crazy story.

    I can't believe the woman who unwrapped the skeleton was in jail for four days, that's just ridiculous.
    I wasn't aware of that, at the time.

    I doubt either are really missed. They gave nothing to their children, but demons to carry for life.

    @TootsieFootsie Bless you for finding this stuff.

    "STONE FROG". Enough said. Would make a good band name. NO disrespect meant!

    I have never read anything like this before. If it wasn´t for the awful life the chilren had I would have thought I read a synopsis for an Agatha Raisin episode.

    It's a show!

    Are they British?

    All I got was Agatha don't think marriage is all that it's made out to be.

    Stone Frog!
