A woman has been arrested for stabbing her boyfriend to death, hacking his body into pieces and trying to dissolve the parts in acid before grabbing a burger with her mum afterwards.
Hungarian national Szilvia P., 27, has been arrested for killing her unnamed 32-year-old Tunisian boyfriend at their home in the Austrian capital Vienna.
The suspect reportedly got into a fight with her boyfriend over breakfast on 24th February.
According to local media, the Tunisian migrant was repeatedly violent towards Szilvia and in a rage she allegedly stabbed him with a kitchen knife.
She then decided that the best way to cover up the crime was to make the body disappear, according to reports.
Szilvia P. allegedly cut off the victim’s head, hands and legs and packed the body parts in a suitcase.
She then used an unnamed ridesharing app to flee with the body to her native Hungary, according to local media.
Reports said that Szilvia P. told her 51-year-old mother about the crime and that they both allegedly hatched the plan to dissolve the body parts in acid.
Szilvia’s mother reportedly bought 10 litres of hydrochloric acid in a DIY store, although their attempts to dissolve the body failed as the amount of acid was not enough for the grisly task at hand.
According to local media, they placed the partly-burned corpse into several rubbish bags and dumped them in an irrigation canal in the town of Jaszalsoszentgyorgy.
Afterwards, they reportedly went to eat a burger together.
The crime was discovered when a 15-year-old boy saw a hand sticking out of one of the rubbish bags when he cycled by.
With the help of Europol, investigators managed to identify the body by his unique scorpion tattoo.
The DIY shop worker who sold the acid has reportedly testified to the cops which led to the arrest of the mother and daughter.
According to local media, Szilvia P. has confessed to the crime, telling investigators: “Yes, I committed the crime in Vienna. I then transported the body in several suitcases to Hungary and hid it with the help of my mum.”
The victim, the son of a Tunisian doctor, had reportedly moved to Austria to seek a better future for himself.
His family said: “We are devastated and want to travel to Vienna as soon as possible to get some answers.”
The investigation is ongoing.
