Adulterers, shootings and stabbings — our list has them all as the most horrifying homicides in history that started out as romances. With victims completely undeserving of such horrid acts and others that received delivered justice, these are the creepiest stories of homicide you will ever read.
Ruth Snyder and Henry Judd Gray
Here we see callous accomplice Ruth Snyder, the first woman to be formally executed since 1899 in Sing Sing prison, about to be put to death. Ruth upholds the stereotypical “loving wife” facade that secretly finds a lover behind her husband’s back willing to get rid of him, that we often see on the news today.
Married to Albert Snyder, Ruth always felt that she fell second to Albert’s former fiancee that he had tragically lost to an untimely death. Ruth was so sure about this and despised that Albert reportedly hung a picture of her in their living room and refused to take it down. Of course, she resented him heavily for that and decided to take action after starting an affair with salesman and lover Henry Judd Gray.
