Sex addict army sergeant who tried to murder his wife by sabotaging

A sex obsessed soldier who tried to murder his wife by sabotaging her parachute picked up women using a swingers’ website behind her back, MailOnline can reveal.

Emile Cilliers also went to sex parties at a seedy club after creating his profile on Fab Swingers, saying he was looking for single women and couples aged 18 to 55.

Using the moniker ‘Hot For It’, the 38-year-old army sergeant posted naked pictures of himself and arranged a series of liaisons with strangers. 

Cilliers, who wanted to join the SAS, tried to kill his second wife Victoria, 42, a skydiver, by cutting her parachute in 2015 so that he could use the £120,000 life insurance money to start a new life with a lover he met on Tinder.

The serial love cheat, described as a ‘boobaholic’, was having affairs with his first wife Carly, 38, and his mistress Stefanie Goller while plotting his wife’s murder.

The father-of-six was also in contact with ‘a number’ of prostitutes, even making arrangements by text to film himself having unprotected sex with one woman.

Womaniser Cilliers claimed he never met any escorts but contacted them because it gave him ‘a thrill’. 

But reviews of alleged encounters with the balding serviceman posted on Fab Swingers appear to show the physical training instructor was cheating on his wife throughout their six-year marriage.

A review posted by a 39-year-old woman from Salisbury in February 2012 reads: ‘Didn’t get as far as having coffee but did have some naughty fun with him. Really sexy body.’

Mrs Cilliers would have been pregnant with their first child when the alleged rendezvous took place.

Another review posted by a 34-year-old woman from Farnham in February 2013 reads: ‘Met this lovely guy tonight for a social meet, after a chat, we began to kiss and hands wandered.’

In January 2014 a couple, whose interests include bestiality, posted: ‘A very friendly genuine guy, we had a really enjoyable evening with this guy great company and not pushy just right. Mrs enjoyed herself to the full, he definitely put a smile on her face.’

On his profile, Cilliers lists his interests as group sex, spanking, dogging, voyeurism, threesomes, S&M and swingers clubs. Several others were not suitable to print in a family newspaper.

Describing himself, Cilliers wrote: ‘I am a very well-endowed male and I like to keep in shape and have a very athletic body.  

‘A muscly man who likes to keep in shape is looking for some sensual fun. I always say, try anything at least once!!!

‘If I catch your eye and want to know more just wink or send your questions.

‘Looking for regular meets with couples and females. Ideally I would like a f*** buddy to have some regular fun with and to possibly take to Swingers clubs.’

Ricardo Harwood, who hosted Donkey Dicks Parties from a £200,000 terraced house in Salisbury, said Cilliers was seen there before it was raided by police last May.

The 61-year-old told MailOnline detectives visited him two years ago to ask if Cilliers went to his parties, which are advertised on Fab Swingers.

Mr Harwood said: ‘That name rang a bell so I checked my phone and Emile’s name and telephone number were saved in it.

‘I had also stored his username, Hot For It, which means that he had a profile on Fab Swingers.

‘I can’t tell you when he’s been or how many times but I have seen his face at my parties. And I wouldn’t have his number otherwise.

‘I used to host two parties every month. Everyone would bring their own alcohol and the party would eventually move to one of the three private rooms.

‘It was a swingers’ party so people would come to have sex. I was providing a safe environment for couples or singles to have sex. We had a lot of military men because of our location.

‘I’ve only had police ask me about a member once in 30 years and it was Emile. They said it was about an alleged assault on a female but they wouldn’t reveal anymore.’

Mr Harwood’s club hit the headlines last May when it was shut down after numerous complaints by his neighbours.

Salisbury Magistrates Court heard that when police raided the property, all ten guests – nine men and one woman – were completely naked.

During Cilliers’ trial, his wife told how she found condoms in his car and at home, and saw that he was receiving messages from other women about a sex club. 

Mrs Cilliers said in a police interview: ‘There were messages from – sort of chats with women – saying he was going to visit them, something to do with the club, I can’t remember the name of it, but essentially it’s a sex club that pops up at different locations.

‘He said his account had been hacked and he had no idea who these people were making arrangements to meet someone in Salisbury.’

Cilliers told the court he is ‘a very sexually active person’.

He also said: ‘I’ve not had any other affairs, but I’ve had casual sex with others. I met Stefanie on Tinder, I turned it back on when I got to Austria.’ 

Cilliers, who will be sentenced at a later date, showed no emotion as he was convicted of two attempted murder charges and a third count of damaging a gas fitting.

Days before he sabotaged his wife’s parachute, he tampered with the gas supply at the £235,000 family home where their two young children lived in an attempt to create an explosion.  

Detective Inspector Paul Franklin, of Wiltshire Police, described Cilliers as ‘cold and calculated’ and a ‘very dangerous man’.

He added: ‘I don’t think we can underestimate the ordeal that Mrs Cilliers has been put through.’
