British army sergeant Emile Cilliers on trial for allegedly tampering with his wife’s parachute

I’m afraid I’d always regarded the Sun as a rubbish newspaper for the lowest class of semi-literate readers interested mostly in cheap sensationalism and the cheesecake photos on their celebrated “Page Three.” Perhaps I owe them an apology! This is good stuff worthy of CSI. It’s also a salutary reminder to would-be malefactors not to try doing away with their unwanted spouse, because these days, forensic science is gonna GETCHA! Much of the time, anyway.
