In small towns, everybody knows each other's secrets, but not everyone admits to knowing each other's secrets.
A Reddit thread asked people from small towns that *one thing* everybody knows, but wouldn't be caught dead discussing...and a lot of people have been caught dead.
Each and every one of them has the makings of a network TV drama.
Two guys robbed one of those car compacting places, where they mash up old vehicles into giant metal bricks.
They went in at night, dropped off by their gfs to go get parts and scrap to sell I guess. Theyd done it before, the owner found out and waited for them one night.
Shot both in the backs of the heads, put their bodies in a car and crushed it up.
The truck didnt come to pick up the metal for a couple days so the one with their bodies sat out in the heat, the officers only found them after the [girlfriends] telling police they dropped them off there and couldn't find them again. They checked the place and found them from the smell.
I remember before the two guys were found, missing posters of them were all over the town.
