Heartless pig farmer David Venables killed his wife Brenda Venables in 1982 to continue an affair with another woman – her remains went undiscovered for nearly 40 years.

But Venables’ lies finally unraveled in 2019 when unsuspecting workers made a grizzly discovery while clearing an underground chamber at his old home.
