Man hid dead woman in flat for two months

Police in Thessaloniki are questioning a 46-year-old German man who allegedly kept a dead woman hidden in his rented flat for over two months, local police sources said yesterday. Officers found the 54-year-old woman, also a German, lying on a bed in the small coastal town of Asprovalta, some 100 kilometers (62 miles) east of Thessaloniki, local police said. The investigation has so far determined that the unidentified man, who kept another home in town, would regularly visit the flat to disinfect the premises with chlorine and place aromatic candles. The authorities were alerted by the woman’s parents after they had been unable to contact her for more than two months. A coroner has so far ruled out foul play in the woman’s death. (AFP)
