Re: Swiss banker 'kills wife and buries her in garden'

Certain things don't add up in this case, I'm here to give you some clues:

1) He's Swiss for a start - we never murder anyone (well, often ....)

2) Bankers always deal within the confines of the law (11th Commandment)

3) If you're going to do it properly, chop her up into little pieces and feed them to the pigs.



4) Er, don't even think about disposing of the body in your own garden! In your own garden? Don't bankers ever watch CSI? How stupid do you need to be? There are daily tips of how to do murder properly freely available on TV and the internet.

5) Bankers, tsk ....
