The police found the remains of a man in a freezer of an 82-year-old man from Landgraaf on Saturday. It may be the body of his deceased father, the newspaper writes The Limburger. The body would have been there for a long time.
According to the police spokesperson, it concerns the former resident of the house on Mansholtstraat in Landgraaf. “Another resident has been identified as a suspect, but has not been arrested.” He has been interrogated. The police do not assume a crime.
According to De Limburger, the current resident is the 82-year-old son of the man in the freezer, but the police do not want to say anything about that. “We will not answer questions about the relationship between the two,” said the spokesperson.
According to investigative sources consulted by the newspaper, the deceased man had been in the freezer for a long time. It would be years rather than weeks or months. “We don’t know how long that man had been there and why,” said the police spokesman. Several scenarios are being investigated, including possible fraud concerning the old age pension of the deceased.
The case would have been initiated by the doctor of the deceased man. He would have expressed his concerns about the well-being of the man to the police. Officers then visited the house and discovered the body.
The house has been owned by the 82-year-old suspect since 1967. The man’s father is also registered at the address. The police emphasized that the death was caused by natural causes. If the son is suspected of concealing his late father’s body, he faces a maximum prison sentence of two years or a hefty fine.
