Decapitating Granny

A “Swiss” youngster in Frauenfeld became so peeved with his grandmother that he removed her head and carried it away with him.

I couldn’t find any news articles in English about the crime. There’s one story in German, from Blick. But there seem to be hundreds of news reports on it in Albanian. The first name of the alleged perp is Fatmir, which appears to be a fairly common name in Albania.

The following video, also from Blick, contains all the information we have on the incident. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

00:16   did not leave his grandmother’s head in the apartment. Because the spokesman announced
00:20   that the head of the victim was “secured”. Where and when, the police spokesman did not want to
00:24   announce “due to ongoing investigations”. Cell Phone Turned In — After the crime Fatmir turned

00:32   “The emergency call did not arrive until ten minutes later. There was no reason to detain the
