  1. This show doesn’t come.on until.tonight ( here at least) how awful to be beaten to death and your wife listening. Has this man move into their home, well closet, like her husband wasnt going to find out. DUH!!!!!! Thought and prayers to the

  2. Unbelievable.. and look at her pic.. Ugly on the inside and outside, yet she has her husband slain while she listens to him die. Enjoy prison and then Hell. Rest in peace, Jeff.

  3. Funny is how Hot her lover Rafael is on the documentary..Look at him in person above.. lol THAT was worth prison??

  4. I can’t believe someone is that bold to move her lover into her marriage home.

  5. i actually googled martha freman just to see if she was as attractive as “scorned”” made her out to be. I came to this site and got my answer.

    • I looked them up too. The actors playing them were gorgeous! They really stretched on that one! As if cheating was not enough. She actually had the guy living in the closet! Unbelievable!

    • Just watched the episode, and wanted to see what they looked like..

  6. Neither she nor her lover are “hot”. You have got to be one desperate individual to sleep with either one of those two nasty looking people. Her poor innocent husband didn’t deserve a monster (inside and out) like that for a wife. RIP

  7. does anyone know who played martha on the show? she was mint.

    • Tony,

      Who really cares about that? This blog is about the victim, which in this case is Jeffrey Freeman and justice for him. It is NOT about the actress who played Martha Freeman. You did not even bother to mention the victim. But I guess you prefer killers, huh? You might take the time to read my comment policy before ever commenting again.

      • Funny you say that because there are more than one comment on the “looks” of the actor& actress depicted in this awful crime of dirt bags. Carry on

  8. RIP Jeff

  9. Its a very sad story. Jeff was just trying to do right by his wife. Unfortunately, he paid with his life. However cureousity got the best of me and I googled Martha Freeman to see if she was as good looking as the actor. Im glad I was not the only one!

  10. She and ROCHA-PEREZ certainly are not as attractive as portrayed on Discovery ID. I hope this ugly bitch rots in hell for what she did to a good man. RIP Jeff!

  11. Ya, LOOK at Martha! Shes as ugly as Racho Perez. They deserve each other and they both belong behind bars.

  12. Wow, Martha was unbelievable on the documentary lol. I knew they had to be ugly in real life. Regardless, Jeff didn’t deserve this. Rip…

    • Meh,

      What difference does the killers appearance make? Is it really important enough to mention? Why mention it?

      • Some people are just curious, that’s what brings us to the sight, I am sure everyone who “investigates” about cases like this online are simply amazed that people can do this to each other. All questions may not make sense to you, it does not mean we do not care about the dearly departed.

  13. What does it really matter what either of them look like looks ain’t what makes a cold blooded killer and that’s what u have here RIP Jeff….

    • Thank you Rhonda. It is amazing how many comments there have been about the killer’s appearance, yet not a word on the true victim here, Jeffrey Freeman, who is the one people should be talking about.

  14. What was Martha Freeman maiden name. Thank you in advance.

  15. This is so sad and unbelievable, may Mr Jeff Freeman soul rest in peace, I pray for him and his love ones and these lost souls that took his life. We must repent n pray each day and yes pray for our enemies. God Bless

  16. I worked for the attorney hired by Jeffrey Freeman’s family who eventually sued on behalf of the family for the wrongful death of Jeffrey Freeman in a Civil Court to keep Martha from benefiting from Jeffrey’s murder by movie and media rights, among other things. Both of Jeffery’s parents have now passed, wonderful people, salt of the earth…and now his brother fights the appeals made by Martha to have a repeal or a retrial as she was “emotionally distraught”. This show is not a great depiction of what happened or the events, exactly, but close. This story is MUCH more involved than could be revealed in court…the evidence, for example, of the escort service Martha had been running from their house on long nights while Jeffrey worked at their business…or the fact that her mother had lived in that house after an out patient elective surgery and died 6 weeks later…that the photos of Martha’s mothers estate jewelry were on Martha’s computer…that Martha’s neighbors, friends and employees had been in Martha’s house many many times during her mother’s “recuperation” but NEVER knew that mother was there…there are many many things about Martha that are not public nor did they ever all come out at the time of the trials as they were deemed unable to use some evidence…such as, for example, the bruises on Jeffrey’s pelvic bone…those close to the case will get that…Martha is a very manipulative person who thinks she is smarter than everyone around her. I interviewed her several times while she was on 2nd ave holding jail in Nashville…she’s not sick…she’s slick…and she thinks she can get sympathizers and obviously she has in the attorney who is filing her appeal…good luck Martha! I have a LOT of hard copy evidence against you including the audio tapes of my interviews with you and Perez…and the videos of your neighbors…the videos your neighbors took of your at night pre and post murder…
    There’s a special place for you Martha! I hope i am still alive when you get to go there so I can smile! Evil woman!!!!!!!

  17. Update: An account of this case just aired tonight on ID’s “How Not To Kill Your Husband”, episode title “Fatal Affections”.

  18. Poor husband, Poor man, how can she even only breath beeing aware of what she did? I Pray for Jeffrey. 💓
