Man (82) puts deceased father in freezer: 'I didn't want to miss him'

In a house in Landgraaf, the police found a dead man in a freezer this weekend. This is one of the occupants of the building. The other resident has been interviewed by the police. He is suspected of hiding the body, but has not been apprehended.

The police do not want to say what the relationship was between the two residents of the building because of the ongoing investigation, but according to 1Limburg, the suspect is an 82-year-old man and the deceased man was his father.

The suspect tells the broadcaster that his father died a year and a half ago at the age of 101. "I didn't want to lose him. Otherwise I would miss him," he says. That's why he put his father in the freezer so he could "still talk to him".

According to the daily newspaper De Limburger, the case came to light thanks to the deceased's GP. He would have been concerned about the man's health and alerted the police. The police confirm that they went to the man's house based on a report, but do not say who made the report.

Stranded woman survives five days on wine and sweets in Australian wilderness

By Robbert van der Linde
May 09, 2023 at 00:29
Update: 2 hours ago

An Australian woman survived five days in the Australian wilderness on nothing but a bottle of wine and some sweets. The woman was stranded due to car trouble.
Lilian Ip, 48, was driving through the wilderness of the southern state of Victoria on Monday when her vehicle got stuck in mud. Only after five days in the so-called bush was she found by a rescue helicopter.

The woman was more than 60 kilometers from civilization. A medical condition prevented her from walking that distance. That is why she stayed with her vehicle, reports the Australian police.

All the while she survived on the food and drink she had in the car: a bottle of wine and some sweets. The woman does not drink alcohol and brought the bottle of wine so that she could give it to her mother as a gift. Since she had no water with her, she drank the wine anyway to stay alive.

The woman said she was on the verge of giving up when she was found by a rescue team on Friday. She had even written a farewell letter to her family.

"The first thing I thought was that I needed water and a cigarette. Fortunately, my rescuers had both with them," the woman told 9News Australia television. She was taken to hospital with dehydration symptoms, but was allowed to return home to Melbourne shortly afterwards.

Peru extradites Joran van der Sloot to the US for extorting mother Natalee

By our news editors
May 11, 2023 at 5:27 am
Update: 6 hours ago

Joran van der Sloot is temporarily extradited by Peru to the United States. The Dutchman is serving a 28-year prison sentence in the South American country for the murder of Stephany Flores in 2010 and is also the main suspect in the disappearance of the American Natalee Holloway in 2005.
Now the US wants to prosecute him for extortion and fraudulent acts after a report from Holloway's mother.

In 2010, just before he went to Peru, the 35-year-old Dutchman would have accepted $ 25,000 (converted to about 19,800 euros) in cash from the Holloway family. In return, he would lead them to Natalee's body. He allegedly committed fraud with the money.

Holloway disappeared in 2005 during a school trip to Aruba. She was last seen leaving a bar with Van der Sloot. Her body was never found and the Dutchman was not prosecuted. A judge later pronounced Holloway dead. She would have been 36 years old now.

Mother Natalee Holloway: 'Finally justice'
The Peruvian government has agreed to temporarily extradite the Dutchman to the US authorities. "There he is being prosecuted for extortion and fraud," said Peruvian Justice Minister Daniel Maurate Romero.

A 2001 treaty between Peru and the US allows a suspect to be temporarily extradited to be tried in the other country. The prisoner is 'returned' as soon as the judicial process is completed.

It is unclear when exactly Van der Sloot will be extradited. A spokesman for the Holloway family told the American news channel CNN that the Dutchman is not yet in the US, but that the trial will probably start on Thursday.

Holloway's mother Beth said in response to the news from Peru that "justice is finally coming".

Not quite sure where to post this, but a recent, slightly controversial jewellery sale was packed full of some stunners.  At the projected price, it was going to be the most expensive sale ever, eclipsing that of Elizabeth Taylor's, but many items went above and beyond - sometimes by multiples of the predicted estimates.  Go on, go have a drool over some of these (and if someone who can post pics could bring some over here, even better): https://www.christies.com...ion-22535-gnv/browse-lots

Here is the bargain of the sale https://www.christies.com...om=salessummary&lid=1 . The estimate was off by 1,000,000 . Iíd be furious were I the seller.

On the other hand, it makes me very cheerful about the natural pearl and solitaire diamond clasp necklace that my late mother in law gave to Juliet. It had belonged to my MILís mother, so circa 1890. Itís not as big as the one in the sale, but apparently, itís worth a fair amount! https://www.christies.com...om=salessummary&lid=1

I was thinking that maybe from 600 tweet will go to 800, I'm afraid he will keep the limitations.
I'm not very optimistic for the future in general.

I found this video on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2bQ1ikz2TE

It offers a general picture and interesting information on german occupation in Greece.

In uni we had an amazing, absolutely great professor, pr. Hagen Fleischer. He's German and his relationship with Greece started when he was writing his desertation. I don't remember the whole story but at some point he found out that the events of the german presence in Greece had not been studied efficiently and in detail, so he changed his subject and he came here to research. He met his wife, his Greek wife, and the rest is history itself.
He had told us that once he heard his mother in law talking on the phone with one of her sisters, it was before the wedding. So she was telling "He's German but he's a good one" - quite evidential of the cruelty Germans showed here.

Why am I telling all these? Well, maybe the video intrigue your interest on the matter and I concider Fleischer's work the ideal vehicle for someone to explore that era. And I also miss him, so warm person and - again - great professor.

Maybe somebody has posted it before, but, if not, here is a link for an very excellent piece on Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova. I think it's interesting even if you are not a tennis fan.

I read the article, and itís excellent. The writer is superb, and the interviewees honest and vulnerable. Such amazing women. Itís one of the best sports profiles Iíve head. Plus I am a huge fan of longtime friendships.
