A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering his mother and cutting her corpse up into little bits before leaving the body parts around the house.
The 36-year-old man was arrested during the night of Saturday to Sunday in the city of Salon-de-Provence, in the south-eastern french department of Bouches-du-Rhone.
The relatives of the 57-year-old woman, who has not been named in local media, worried that they had not heard from her and warned the Fire Brigade which went to her home last Sunday, at around 1:30am in the morning.
After noticing that no one was answering in her apartment located on the 2nd floor of a building in the La Roseraie residence on the Alphonse Daudet avenue, the firefighters broke down the door.
Inside like a scene from a horror movie they discovered the body of the woman cut into several pieces, which had been scattered all over the apartment,and called police.
One of the victim’s sons, who has not been named but who is 36 years old and who was in the dwelling, was immediately arrested and taken into custody. The prosecutor’s office indicated that the respondent was known to have a “psychiatric history”.
At this stage, the circumstances of the victim’s death remain to be determined. An investigation has been opened and entrusted to the Marseille departmental security service.
