Man drowns himself in lake using concrete weight containing his wife’s head
VIENNA — A man strangled and dismembered his wife, entombed her head in concrete and then used the concrete block as a weight to drown himself in an Austrian lake, authorities said Tuesday. Police official Gottfried Mitterlehner said the couple were a 72-year old man and his 71-year old wife from Germany but did not further identify them. Officials told reporters the head was found in a block of concrete in a bag attached to the man’s hand. The other hand also was weighed down. The corpse and the bag were recovered by police divers from the waters of Traunsee Monday.
