B.C. hang glider pilot might have (literally) swallowed evidence of woman's deadly fall

The case of a woman who fell to her death from a hang glider in B.C.’s Fraser Valley last Saturday has taken a bizarre turn.

The Canadian Press is reporting that police believe William (Jon) Orders, the pilot who was flying the tandem glider with 27-year-old Lenami Godinez-Avila, swallowed a memory card from an on-board camera that would have recorded her last moments.

From the Vancouver Sun:

Orders, who has been charged with obstructing justice, is scheduled to appear in Chilliwack Provincial Court Wednesday afternoon on a bail hearing. He has been in custody since the fatal flight.

Orders, who has 16 years’ experience, is owner-operator of Vancouver Hang Gliding.
