Tell-tale twitch


Chat - - Hair-raising -

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.

Cliff says:

‘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.’
