Austria: man kept mother's body in basement to draw pension
Austrian police say a man hid his mother's body in his basement for over a year in order to continue receiving her pension and nursing allowance.
They said in a statement that the 66-year old admitted in questioning to having kept her body in the basement after she died at home so that he could keep receiving her benefits. Investigations so far suggest that he took in a “mid-five-digit” sum of euros.
Authorities conducted an autopsy on his mother's body on Wednesday and found no evidence of foul play.
