The grisly tale
Wayne Forrester, 34, of London, England was found guilty of murdering his 34 year old wife and mother of two, Emma. They had been married for 15 years and recently separated. Forrester, a truck driver, repeatedly stabbed her in the head and neck with a kitchen knife and a meat cleaver on February 18th in the middle of the night in their former home. He was later determined to be intoxicated and high on cocaine. He did not flee the scene. Neighbors found him sitting outside the house covered in blood and called the police.
The postmodern twist
Forrester told the cops about his dead wife, "Emma and I had just split up. She forced me out. She then posted messages on an internet website telling everyone she had left me and was looking to meet other men.
Forrester called his wife's parents the day before the murder to protest changes in Emma's Facebook profile which was now listing her as single.
He said, "I loved Emma and felt totally devastated and humiliated about what she had done to me."
