Deadly de­tail

Chat - - Hair-raising -

In 1994, Gor­don Wardell told po­lice he be­lieved his wife had been killed in a raid at the build­ing so­ci­ety where she worked. In fact, he’d as­phyx­i­ated her, then crafted a cal­lous plan to de­ceive po­lice. Wardell was sen­tenced to life in prison for his wife’s mur­der.

Cliff says:

‘He didn’t blink as he re­called the at­tack. That could sig­nify that he’s re­hearsed this story in his mind and he’s re­play­ing the video – and he’s fo­cus­ing on the de­tail of that video and play­ing it across to the cam­eras. The many pauses that Wardell makes give an in­di­ca­tion of the think­ing that’s go­ing on here to make sure he con­structs a story in a plau­si­ble, be­liev­able way.’
