A husband has confessed to killing his wife when they lived in Missouri, and now the police are searching a landfill for her remains.
37-year-old Keith Comfort of Wisconsin used to live in Columbia with his wife Megan Shultz, who was 24 at the time.
Over the weekend, Comfort walked into a police station in Lake Geneva, WI 13 years to the day that his wife was reported missing on August 5, 2006. He confessed to strangling Schultz after the pair got into an argument. Her body was stuffed into a garbage bag before she was tossed into a dumpster at their apartment complex.
Comfort reported her missing after Schultz’s mother questioned him on her whereabouts. He told the police at the time that Megan left the apartment the day before on August 4, 2006 and she never returned home. He filed for divorce a few weeks later and moved to Wisconsin.
Comfort is charged with second degree murder.
