Barbara Geehr tells the story of the millionaire who cold-bloodedly scarified his wife’s life for cash. If he had hated her you could understand it. But there was no rancour – it was just that he was fonder of money…
If you ever felt sorry for a killer than you would be for the pilot of the plane, he had to land to make the adjustment, and the likelihood of being seen swooping down onto an unlit airstrip in the middle of nowhere at dead of night seemed remote.

The interference of that wide-wake witness not only covered a murder case but also did the swamp alligators out of a free feed!
