Murder Most Foul No. 50
For nearly 23 years Peter Reyn-Bardt lived with a terrible secret. And with the passing of those years he began to think that he was safe. In 1960 he killed his wife at their cottage in Wilmslow, Cheshire, dismembered her corpse and buried her head. Then in 1983 a man digging for peat unearthed a human skull just 300 yards from Reyn-Bardt’s home. It was the breakthrough the police had long awaited, for the discovery was enough to induce him to confess to his wife’s murder. Ironically, Reyn-Bardt had been panicked into confessing by a skull which was not his wife’s.
