Gran killed by grandson to please grandad

Gran killed by grandson to please grandad

Austrian police have arrested an 18-year-old boy in connection with the murder of his grandmother at Taufkirchen in Upper Austria.

The brutality of the crime had already shocked the local neighbourhood but the discovery that it was the woman's grandson that executed her has been greeted with disbelief.

But police investigating said it was clear right from the start that whoever carried out the killing had been an insider and wanted to make it look like it was burglars – but blood traces on the door proved that the woman had been killed first and only later had the person kicked in the door to make it seem as if strangers were involved.

Police also found traces of blood on the teenagers moped crash helmet and after several other crucial clues the teenager finally made a confession – admitting that he had stabbed his grandmother and then chopped her up with an axe.

And he claimed that he had been told to do so by his grandfather. He claimed that he worshipped everything the old man said and that he had several times been asked to carry out the killing – but was told to wait until the grandfather was at a festival so he could say he had an alibi.

The grandfather, aged 72, denies being involved. Both are currently in investigative custody.
