Miss­ing wife found buried in base­ment

Midweek Sport - - GADGET BOY -

THE skele­ton of a wife re­ported miss­ing by her hus­band 27 years ago has been found hid­den in a wall of the base­ment of their house.

Teacher JoAnn Nichols was said to have van­ished in De­cem­ber 1985 by her hus­band, James in Pough­keep­sie, New York.

Mr Nichols died of nat­u­ral causes last year aged 82.

A con­trac­tor who was clean­ing out of the Nichols’ home found the bones in a sealed con­tainer be­hind a false base­ment wall.

The lo­cal med­i­cal ex­am­iner’s of­fice iden­ti­fied the re­mains as those of JoAnn Nichols, based on den­tal records and said she died from a blow to the head.

Po­lice say the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into her death con­tin­ues. I HOPE ev­ery­one who went to the Glas­ton­bury Fes­ti­val at the week­end had a good time.

I have al­ways wanted to go, but never man­aged to find the time.

So next year I’m plan­ning to pack my ruck­sack and take the plunge.

Booze, bands and bonking fit blokes – what’s not to like?

All I have to do is fund a hunky fella to put up my tent.

Any vol­un­teers?
