I saw this while reading The Sun online at lunch time... very sad.

But if there ever was a non-story here, it is that the murder suspect is a pilot. While we tend to hold pilots to higher standards because of their workplace responsibilities, they have personal lives (and problems) just like anybody else! If true, this pilot might be involved with murdering his estranged wife - the fact that a shallow grave has been discovered, and unconfirmed reports of her body, I'd say he is in a heap of trouble.

I wonder how many a.netters know the pilot that has been arrested? Probably not wise to comment about him on a public forum but I wonder if he was known for being hot-headed or for exhibiting a "God complex"?

So let's not talk about it because it is strictly incidental that the accused individual is a pilot and it isn't prudent to talk about presumed-innocent people on a public forum, but let's gossip anyway about whether he showed any sign of being unstable or anything less than fully grounded in his professional duties and whether that translated into him becoming a murderer... Is that the plan?
