Woman Credits 'Criminal Minds' for Way She Hid Bodies

"Things don't smell right. Literally, they don't smell right. There's a foul odor in the house, and the detectives ask about that and she says, 'Oh, I had some rotten meat and I had it in the sink,'" Sheriff Grady Judd said during a press conference.
