Woman hides dead mother in freezer to collect her 10 years pension

A woman kept her dead mother hidden in a freezer for ten years so she
could continue to claim an old age pension equivalent to £1700-a-month,
prosecutors revealed today.

The 90-year-old’ corpse was found after detectives started investigating
the alleged social security fraudster, who is 55 and cannot be named
for legal reasons.

She was living in a detached house in the picturesque village of
Horsarrieu, close to Pau, in South West France, with her mother’s
remains at the end of the garden.

‘They were hidden in a freezer, and there had been no report of the
mother’s death,’ said a prosecuting source in nearby Mont-de-Marsan,
capital of the Landes department.
‘The freezer was not connected to the electricity supply going into the house. It was just a hiding place,’ the source added.

The suspect was first interviewed by gendarmes on Tuesday, and claimed that her mother had died seven years ago.

Investigators noticed, however, that there had been no medical fees
claimed by the mother since 2007, suggesting that the time of death was
more likely to be a decade ago.

The Mirror reports that all the mother’s benefits arrangements,
including drawing an old age pension, continued as normal throughout
that time.

At the time of death, the pair were living some 200 miles away, close to
Toulouse, which means that the woman would have transported the corpse
in secret when they moved to Horsarrieu in July 2016.

Police have evidence that the suspect had put her own picture on her
mother’s driving licence – an offence that led to a search of the
property. The corpse was found wrapped in a tarpaulin, with old clothes
used to hide it.

An autopsy was due to be held on Wednesday to try to establish whether
the mother had died of natural causes, or whether foul play was
