Sleeping Like The Dead



Friends of Jeff Charles Sherwood, a 45-year-old Metro Detroit, Michigan man, and his wife, 64-year-old Susan Louise Klepsch, were worried about the couple. Hadn’t heard from them in days, so they let themselves into their home and found Jeff and Susan in bed together. Nothing wrong with that. Consenting adults and all, and besides Jeff and Susan, were a couple. But, something was out of whack. The worried friends could barely get Jeff to talk. And when he did say a few syllables, it was plain that he didn’t know where he was. And Susan? Forget about her. She was dead to the world. Couldn’t wake her up. So they did what anyone would do. The couple worried about their friends called the Hazel Park police. Guess what? Susan really was dead to the world. Police say Jeff beat and strangled her to death and then slept beside the dead woman’s body for days. Days! He’s charged with first-degree murder, being held in jail today on a $3.5 million bond. Confesses to the whole thing. Jeff admitted beating, kicking and strangling his wife after she accused him of cheating on her. How long did Jeff sleep with a dead Susan? About a week, says Hazel Park’s top cop, Chief Brian Buchholz. During the day, Jeff would go out of bed and go about his business, but at night, Chief Buchholz says, “it appears he would get in bed with her when he slept.”
