The chilling story of what a man would do to collect 2,000 euros a month pension from his aunt, even if she’s no longer alive. The Telegraph reports:
Reports alleged that Gaetano Adragna, 43, a part-employed computer technician, relied on the pension for most of his rent and living expenses.
When they visited the apartment in Catania, in Sicily, they found her frozen body in a large white freezer.
The scam was revealed when neighbours of Annita Bonnici, 95, a widow of a former general in the Italian army, became suspicious after not seeing her for several months.
Mr Adragna had visited his elderly great-aunt twice a week.
Neighbours said they would often meet him on the stairs leading up to his great-aunt’s flat but that he started to tell contradictory stories about her state of health.
