HOW HE TRIED TO COVER HIS TRACKS

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

DE­LUDED Lindo thought he could cover up his crime with an elab­o­rate false trail us­ing so­cial net­work­ing and his wife’s mo­bile phone.

Af­ter bru­tally slay­ing Marie the ma­nip­u­la­tive sicko man­aged to con­vince her fam­ily she had aban­doned her two young chil­dren and run abroad with an­other man.

He in­vited Marie’s 55-year-old fa­ther Robert and sis­ter Katie, 26, for a meal where he de­scribed how she had packed all her clothes and left him.

De­scrib­ing the visit, Robert said: “There was no sign of Marie. An­drew told us that she had packed all her clothes and left him.

“He was as nor­mal as you could ex­pect un­der the cir­cum­stances.”

Lindo then sent text mes­sages from Marie’s mo­bile phone telling her fam­ily not to in­ter­fere in her life and to leave her alone.

And even when they be­gan to get sus­pi­cious about her dis­ap­pear­ance, he posted a mes­sage on her Face­book site which de­scribed how she was “hav­ing fun in the sun”.

But her fam­ily be­came in­creas­ingly sus­pi­cious, and when Marie failed to make any con­tact at all on her son’s first birth­day they called the po­lice.

Af­ter an ex­ten­sive search their worst fears were re­alised when they found their daugh­ter’s blood­ied body
