A man killed his wife to be with his boyfriend Grindr. But his iPhone Health app gave his plot.

Mitesh Patel comes home with a pizza the night the police said he had killed his wife. (Cleveland Police). She had been strangled with a Tesco bag for life. Mitesh Patel told police that he had just bought a pizza the night of May 14, while he was returning home to find his wife, Jessica, lying in the living room, motionless. The reusable plastic bag, which owes its name to a local grocery store, was deformed and sprinkled with Jessica's saliva. Tape was wrapped around her wrists and ankles and covered her mouth. And at the beginning, Patel told the emergency operator that he did not know if she was alive or dead. "Oh hiya," he said following the Washington Post 's emergency call from their homes in Middlesbrough, England. "I think we were robbed and my wife was attacked." The house, he said, had been ransacked. Clothes were thrown on the floor in the couple's room. The contents of each drawer and shelf (papers, handbags, makeup) seemed scattered randomly in the room. But when the police and paramedics arrived, the whole scene seemed weird. They found no evidence of forced entry. Patel's house was equipped with a security camera, but oddly enough, they found the hard drive stored in a suitcase under the bed and later learned that the tape had been cut just minutes before they arrived. In the dresser in Patel's room, they found a flipped photo under the lining. That was from Patel and another man – who, according to the police, would soon be at the center of everything. The man in the photo was an Australian doctor Patel met on Grindr, the application of gay men's dating. His extramarital relationships with men that he encountered on the application were perhaps his least well kept secret. At the neighborhood pharmacy he owned, Jessica and he, his co-workers, often found him scrolling through the potential connections behind the counter when Jessica was not there. Jessica would eventually find out herself, finding her message "love you x" to the Australian doctor on her phone. And the police would also find them soon. "As you said, she is a renter," Patel told his boyfriend in a message, comparing his wife to a short-term tenant in their relationship, according to the live coverage of the lawsuit. the local newspaper Teesside Live. "One day, this lease will expire." On Wednesday, Patel was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum sentence of 30 years imprisonment for killing his wife so he could escape to Australia and start a new life with his wife. lover Grindr. Prosecutors say he plans to cash out 2 million euros ($ 2.27 million) under life insurance policies from his wife and has been planning his murder for more than five years. He had waited so long, prosecutors said, because he hoped Meanwhile, she would fall pregnant and give birth to a baby – whom Patel had planned to raise with her boyfriend. "What are your thoughts if she leaves earlier than you think?", Asked his friend in text messages quoted in court, referring to the hypothetical death of his wife. "Do you want to like it? like yours? "" I can like it, "replied the doctor, referring to the hypothetical baby," as long as there is no one else involved. "
The scene inside Mitesh Patel's house on the day of the murder. Police said the robbery was organized. (Cleveland Police). Jessica has never been pregnant but could have. At the time of her death, she had undergone in vitro fertilization treatment. When Patel appeared at the bar, prosecutors suggested that Patel may have thought, "You have eggs and embryos, you do not need Jess anymore." "Did it cross your mind?" Asked a prosecutor. "No, that's not the case," Patel said. Patel and Jessica had known each other since childhood, prosecutors said during the trial. They both grew up in the same Hindu community of West Yorkshire, and then resumed contact with adulthood while they were studying at a university in Leicester. Prosecutors said that Patel was Jessica's first boyfriend and that in 2008, Patel had asked his father's permission to marry him. The father said no, then changed his mind and will regret it later. The couple once ran a popular neighborhood pharmacy
Teesside Live explained that "giving more than just medicine" was the "heart of the suburbs," the newspaper said. But finally, Patel's use of Grindr, as well as his long evening phone calls with his Australian boyfriend, have become a source of deep tension in their marriage, prosecutors said. During a text message exchange in July 2017, the couple wondered whether to follow Jessica's IVF cycles if Patel wanted to continue to be dishonest about his relationship with Grindr. "These texts and images tell me a different story than what you say," Jessica told him. "I said you would be forgiven, I want to be a mother and I always feel it since my marriage, having my own little family was my dream, I think it would be nice to cancel for the moment." think you're crazy, "Patel replied," you can forgive me, but I will not forgive you for that. "Patel's research story on his computer, prosecutors said, showed what 39 he had in mind when he told Jessica that she would "separate" if she decided not to get through with IVF. "Among her researches:" I need to kill my mother. " wife, "" conspiracy to kill his wife, why do I need co-conspirators "," life insurance is paid in case of murder "and" Hindu burial of one " married woman. "YouTube, he watched a video titled" How long does it take for a person to die from strangulation? ". Patel's DNA was found under the fingernails His neck was red and scratched when the police arrived the night of the murder. No other DNA than his own and that of her husband was found on her body or nearby. His voice box was crushed, his neck was bruised just below the ears. Defense counsel suggested that an intruder may be wearing latex gloves, leaving no trace of his attack. But what Patel could not explain is the 42 minutes not counted in his alibi. That's where his iPhone Health app came in. Patel claimed to have seen his wife alive for the last time before going on a "long walk", went to the pharmacy and bought a pizza. At 19:44, just before Patel was captured on video while he was coming out of his home, Jessica's Health app recorded 14 steps – the last move to measure. Once Patel left home, his iPhone did not record any movement. Meanwhile, the Patel's Health app had recorded him climbing up and down the stairs while his wife's app was motionless – during what prosecutors thought was Patel's attempt to organize a break-in. "In order to conceal his crime and to try to persuade the investigators team of the murder to believe that Jess had been murdered while Mitesh was walking," said the inspector in Head of Detective Investigator Matt Murphy-King of the Cleveland Police Department, in a statement: "Mitesh The scene of the murder was staged in such a way as to give the impression that Jess was murdered at a burglary, which the investigation categorically proved to be a lie – one of the many lies Mitesh has made to hide his guilt and his sneaky lifestyle. "During the trial, Patel appeared before the jury, admitting his relationship with the Australian doctor and his use of Grindr, while explaining to the jury that everything was a horrible coincidence. He was asked to explain why he had watched a video explaining to him how to smother a person, suffocated. Just before his wife died the same way, Patel said that he knew it would look bad. He said he and his wife watched the video together. "I sat for six months and a half in this prison cell," he says, "and one of the many things I thought was, how ironic?"
