On Wednesday, a court in Vienna gave a 64-year-old Austrian man life imprisonment for allegedly killing and dismembering a prostitute and making goulash from some of her remains.
The man named Alfred U killed the 28-year-old victim 13 months ago while the headless torso was found at the bottom of the Neusiedler See lake on the Hungarian border.
Police after questioning the accused came to know that he had murdered the Hungarian sex worker after they had an argument at his home over the payment and services.
“I knew I had messed up. But I didn’t want to go back to prison,” he told the court.
He confessed that he has cooked and frozen some of the body parts as goulash in his home “perhaps to taste one day”.
Meanwhile, it has been claimed by the Defence lawyer that her client would appeal the length of the sentence on the basis the murder was not planned.
“Without the disgusting story of the dismembering and goulash, it would have been a common case,” she suggested.
The investigators got the DNA samples which identified the killer after the torso was found from the lake on April 13 last year, two weeks after the confession of the killing of the accused.
