There were clearly some serious issues in this family.
One Austrian grandmother was determined to have the last say in what must have been a long family revenge cycle. When the 85 year old died in her retirement home 950,000 euros (over $1 million) was found shredded in her room, along with her account books. The tiny bits of paper were found on her bed prosecutor Erich Habitzl confirmed.
All of her efforts were in vain though. The deputy head of the OeNB cashier division told local news that if “the heirs can only find shreds of money and if the origin of the money is assured, then of course it can all be replaced,” adding that “If we didn’t pay out the money then we would be punishing the wrong people.”
But wisdom comes with age, so one has to wonder why their granny was so against them getting their hands on any money.
