What does one do if you ever find your estranged wife sleeping with her boyfriend? Do what any self-respecting person would do and place a transmitter in her bed to hear when she’s doing the dirty deed. Apparently in a classic case of “who done it” a Pennsylvania man by the name of Wayne Cripe, 66, placed a listening device under the pillow of his soon-to-be fully divorced wife Suzanne, 49. The couple though separated still live in the same house, however, different bedrooms. Suppose that’s understandable. This kooky little maneuver ultimately led the cops being called to the door of our Inspector Gadget in the making. Upon arrival, here’s what Wayne had to say:
“I guess she found the transmitter…
Cripe admitted placing the device under his wife’s bed “so he would know if his wife and her boyfriend were having sex.”
Can’t blame the guy I guess for wanting to avoid a slightly awkward run-in, but one novel idea would be for one of them to move out of the house right? Quite the conundrum I must say (the receiver was in his truck). At the end of the day, Mr. Cripe had the following complaint filed against him followed by charges of illegally intercepting communications which is a felony and invasion of privacy, a misdemeanor. Maybe next time he’ll find a better spot.
