This woman has has been accused of hiding two dead babies in her freezer for years after a shocking discovery in Germany this week.
The ex-boyfriend of the 46-year-old woman, who can be only identified as Steffi S due to German media laws, tipped off the police about the gruesome contents of her freezer.
The ex, Uwe W, phoned the police and said: ‘At my ex-girlfriend’s house lies a dead infant.’
When police raided the house they found two frozen corpses in the freezer.
Police spokesman Ralf Karlstedt said: ‘We assume that the occupant of the house is the mother. We cannot rule out a crime. Post-mortems on the two bodies will be carried out.’
Steffi S, who lives with her 15-year-old daughter Selina in the house, was taken into investigative custody after the gruesome find but later released.
Chief prosecutor Heike Geyer added: ‘So far, there is an initial suspicion of a crime, but we still do not know whether there actually was a crime. That does not justify investigative custody.’
The shocking find left neighbours in disbelief.
A friend of Steffi S said: ‘It is unbelievable. Steffi has been my best friend for five years. I cannot believe it.’
