Woman hides corpse of mother in freezer to claim pension of deceased

The suspect reportedly hid her mother's corpse in a freezer in order to claim her pension.

French police.

This was in a bid to continue claiming the old age pension, £1,700, belonging to the deceased, the Mirror UK reports.

The body of the 90 year-old woman was found by the police after they launched an investigation and found the corpse of the deceased.

"They were hidden in a freezer, and there had been no report of the mother’s death.

"The freezer was not connected to the electricity supply going into the house. It was just a hiding place," a prosecutor revealed.

The police believe that the old woman died a decade ago, contradicting claims made by the suspect who stated that her mother died seven years ago.

According to reports, there is a plan to conduct an autopsy to determine if the woman died of natural causes.
