You hear the horror stories: you make one fatal mistake and the result is the death of someone you love. Something as simple as under-cooking food can lead to the death of another person, and we rarely even fathom that possibility.

The following 29 stories are tales of people that have killed someone. Some were intentional, usually for self defense. But most are stories from people that heart-wrenchingly blame themselves for the death of another person, and that fact has eaten them up for years.
