Bristol - (Skullduggery Stuff): Did Dutch architect Vincent Tabak really eat Jo Yeates' pizza ... as well as her woollen blue-grey sock?
A groundbreaking ultrasound procedure may now be used to forage the Dutch architect's intestines for microscopic evidence of fabricated - er...fabric! - fibres.
Crown Prosecution Service lawyers said today such proof would be needed to secure a water-tight case.
Tabak has already been charged with 'Murder 1' following a tip-off phone call to Bristol cops.
He is believed to have confessed during the weekend's interrogation - but Jo's missing sock remains an obstacle to a solid case.
Forensic pathology sources maintain that teensy bits of wool might be still be clinging to the inside of the large intestine.
"Sometimes it takes weeks before wool is broken down and eliminated as gastric viscose," National Poisons Unit's fibrology specialists confirmed today.
Christopher Jefferies is 69.
