Husband Speechless After Noticing Something While Cleaning Closet, Found His Wife's Hidden Box

Losing a family member is absolutely devastating. The only thing that could make it worse is learning something heartbreaking about the family member post death.

In 2004, Blake Ruff thought he met the love of his life, his new wife Lori Kennedy. They had a daughter together and a wonderful life.

However, one day Lori was found dead in her car-- and that was only the beginning.

Ruff's family had never fully accepted Lori no matter how she tried. Lori had no living relatives and kept details about her past vague.

This caused tension in the family. Eventually, Lori refused to let Blake's parents near her child. Blake and Lori separated, causing Lori to become even stranger.

According to the Ruff family, Lori started to send a large number of threatening emails to each member of the family.

When Lori was found dead in her car on Christmas Eve, the entire Ruff family was shocked. Blake was immensely devastated by the death of his estranged wife.

But it was his turn to step up and take care of his wife's belongings. When he was looking around he found a lunchbox with different IDs, birth certificates, and two suicide notes- one to Blake and one to their daughter.

Upon further investigation, Lori was actually Kimberly McLean. It took years to find out who she really was.

Kimberly's parents divorced when she was a child, prompting her to have a strained relationship with her mother. One day she told her mother she was leaving forever, which is exactly what she did.

The Facebook page Never Forget Me also posted photos of Kimberly, captioning one of the photos, "Earlier this year, a former Social Security Administration (SSA) investigator, Joe Velling, became convinced the dead woman, known as Lori Ruff, and the Pennsylvania woman were one and the same. It had been a long road to get to this point. The SSA investigates identity theft, and Lori clearly had stolen someone else’s identity — that of a 2-year-old girl from Pierce County who had died in a fire decades earlier. An aide to a Texas congressman had asked Velling to look into the case, after being contacted by the Ruff family. There was no indication she adopted the new identity for financial gain. So why did she do it? Velling used every tool he had but turned up nothing. This was highly unusual."
