Crocodile Tears - Nicholas Kay

Part 1 in the documentary series, "Real Crime: Crocodile Tears," features the case of  the disappearance of Rhonda Kay. Although no body was found and there was no forensic evidence, her husband Nicholas was charged with her murder based on evidence gleaned from recordings of conversations between Nicholas and his new wife. The jury returned the "surprise," verdict of guilty of manslaughter and Mr Kay was sentenced to six years in prison. 

This is an example of a case where the police have had reason to suspect someone of involvement in an alleged disappearance and the appeal for information is studied carefully to analyse the reactions; words,  congruity of emotional expression and body language.
