Murder suspect confesses to killing Geneva pensioner
A man has confessed to killing a Geneva pensioner following the discovery of the 73-year-old woman’s body more than two years after she disappeared.
The man, who was the woman’s neighbour, was arrested not long after the woman went missing.
Her body was found in Nantua in France on Monday. She had withdrawn 40,000 euros from a bank in Geneva a day before her disappearance. Phone records show she’d been trying to call the suspect several times after she’d taken out the money.
After previously denying any involvement in the woman’s disappearance, the suspect has now told Geneva prosecutors that he argued with the pensioner in his apartment. He then pushed her and she died when she fell.
After going to work the following day, with the woman’s dead body still in his apartment, he drove her corpse to Nantua and threw her over a precipice in a forest.
