A German man went to the police station carrying his dead father’s decaying corpse Monday. He confessed that he had kept the body hidden in a rubbish bin for months due to financial reasons, police said.

The 45-year-old man (name withheld to protect his identity) arrived at a police station in the western town of Viersen in the early hours of Monday and wheeled inside a rubbish bin with his father’s body, Wolfgang Wiese, a spokesman for Viersen police, told Reuters.

The man told police his father had died since May at the age 84. He did not tell people about the death due to financial problems. He then hid the corpse in the garbage container.

“Officers opened the door and he announced his dad was in the container,” Wiese said. Police are now looking into the matter. http://www.spiritualityguide.com
