Respect for the cow

Andre McDonald, a reserve Air Force major in the US, is alleged to have murdered his wife, Andreen, by hiding her body under a dead cow and then setting the bodies of both on fire. Her body was identified by dental records.

McDonald, 40, lived near San Antonio, Texas. His wife was last seen alive in February this year.

The couple’s autistic daughter is believed to have witnessed some of the events leading up to her mother’s death.

Andre McDonald served as a cyber-warfare officer with the 426th Network Warfare Squadron at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.
