“We all killed Grandma at the family reunion.
We were moving her into a home, so everyone showed up to help pack up her condo. The family doesn’t get along very well, nobody keeps in touch, so it was probably the last time for a decade-ish that everyone would be together, so we treated it as a family reunion. On the last night we went to a BBQ joint (because it was texas and what else are you gonna eat there?). Grandma didn’t want to eat much because she had some pretty major stomach issues, but we pressured her because it’s the family! C’mon Grandma cut loose! So she ate a bunch of meat, which was on her ‘do not eat’ list.
A week later she was dead from intestinal blockage.” — Katalystica
“When my uncle was younger he and his friends stole a car, drove across the country to Montana, and ended up holding a family hostage to run from the cops. Basically the whole family knows except for his kids. It’s so taboo to talk about that I learned more about it from an archived news article that was published online than I have from my family.” — asoep44
“That my grandmother and her sisters killed their mom.
(Not biologically related, my mom’s step mom).
Old woman had a stroke, they refused to put her in a home and dutifully cared for her…for about a week, until they realized it was a pain in the ass. Instead of finding a care home or home nurse, they decided to just stop feeding her. My grandmother went to the woman’s house every third day like usual and only mentioned this a few years after the funeral.” — KNSF
