A mother in Brussels has been arrested after her daughter’s charred body was found on the mother’s BBQ grill. The mother, who is of African descent is said to have murdered her daughter in a suicide bid. But strangely enough, the mother didn’t have a hair out of place.
When the police arrived, they found the mother cooking her daughter on the BBQ grill and she was almost fully cooked by time they got there. It is not known if the mother killed the daughter and then tried to burn the body or whether she cooked her to death on the grill. Neighbors called the police when they heard the little girl screaming.
The paper spoke to neighbours who said the woman had been depressed for some time after going through a divorce.
She had been living with her mother at the time, but the older woman was reported to have left the house on the evening in question.
Due to the mother’s physical and mental state, she was not immediately interviewed by investigators.
An autopsy on the young girl has already been performed, although the prosecutor’s office of Halle-Vilvoorde have not yet made the results public.
According to psychiatrist Hans Hellebuyck, it is ‘hard to estimate’ what exactly goes through peoples’ minds in cases like this.
He said that if the mother did indeed say that she started the fire because only the soul of cremated bodies enter heaven, could be a sign of psychiatric problems.
Hellebuyck said: ‘If the woman made such remarks and truly meant them, it is possible that she is mentally ill. I am not saying it is like that, but it is something which has to be taken into account.’
We need more immigrants just like this one. Don’t you agree? (Removing tongue from cheek)
