Blink­ing guilty

Chat - - Hair-raising -

In Septem­ber 2005, Michael Gif­ford-hull made a pub­lic, des­per­ate plea for his wife Kirsi to come home.

But she never would, be­cause he’d stran­gled her. Then, when Kirsi’s body was dis­cov­ered in wood­land, Gif­ford-hull said that she’d died ac­ci­den­tally at their Winch­ester home. Con­victed of mur­der, Gif­ford-hull was jailed for 17 years.

Cliff says:

‘I counted 72 blinks in 26 sec­onds. We ex­pect the blink rate to in­crease when a per­son’s think­ing and per­form­ing to a cam­era, but this is highly un­usual. You can al­most hear the cogs work­ing in­side his head, to try to por­tray a story that’s plau­si­ble and cred­i­ble.’
