n 1999, 19-year-old Rachel Mclean’s boyfriend John Tanner flew into a jealous rage and strangled her, then hid her body under floorboards. He appeared on TV appealing for help to find Rachel but was ultimately convicted of her murder. Tanner served 12 years in prison, before returning to his native New Zealand.
‘While talking about Rachel’s future, he gives himself away with a little head shake: “no”. So while he’s saying that she’s got everything to live for, his body is saying this is all wrong, it’s lies.’
