Lover attempts to send phone by carrier pigeon to jailed boyfriend
The pigeon never made it. It fell outside the prison walls. Police found it and soon after spotted Cristielli and another man with a second pigeon inside a plastic bottle with the bottom cut off. This second bird was carrying a ‘backpack’ with a battery, chips and cash.
