In March 2011, a young British pilot, David Simpson, was arrested for mass murder in Africa. David was born and brought up in the idyllic village of Gillamoor, but he didn't want to take over the family pheasant farm, so he landed a job with an exclusive safari company in the Central African Republic (CAR). CAR has endured decades of unrest, and armed rebel groups roam the country, but for David, working in one of the world's last remaining wildernesses was a dream come true. However, as he opened up the bush for big game hunters, relations between the safari company and the local population became increasingly hostile. Villagers used the new roads to access rivers deep in the bush and start illegal gold mines. After a number of escalating confrontations between David and the miners, 13 men were found massacred at a gold mine. David and his boss Erik Mararv were arrested and thrown in jail as prime suspects in the case of the murdered miners. After five and a half months in jail for a crime they always denied committing, they were released without trial.
