These 23 People Found Out Shocking Secrets About Family Members


My uncle committed incest with my cousin from the time she was 7 until she was 16. My aunt knew, but said nothing beyond that God would forgive him. My uncle died last year. I was not saddened by this.


My great grandpa murdered one of his own children. The family was a bunch of poor backwoods hicks and having trouble feeding their kids. My great grandma was pregnant and didn’t learn until delivery that she was pregnant with twins. Great grandpas solution was to bash one of the babies heads against the wash basin. My grandpa wrote a letter to my mom on his deathbed and this was one of the things he wrote about in the letter. When my mom told me my blood turned to ice water. The sheer evilness completely shocked me.


Grandma didn’t go away to fat camp. She was in prison.
