    Hi Alex
    As it happens my other half has a Bsc in forensics and crime scene and an Msc in ID of human remains.She seemed quite shocked some years ago when she asked the question,"If you were to kill me how would you dispose of my body".
    To which I replied "I would take to an area where Lammergeier's occur and leave you there".When I explained why she seemed to think that I had put far to much thought in to it.But then agreed it would make a very intresting study so there you go you heard it first in Dorset.

      So maybe it was the mafia behind the Lammergeier reintroduction in the Alps?
