Grandmother tries to spite heirs by shredding $1.1 million
VIENNA - An Austrian 85-year-old cut up into tiny pieces almost a million euros ($1.1-million) in an apparent attempt to spite her heirs, authorities said on Thursday.
After the woman died in a retirement home, the 950,000 euros as well as savings accounts books were found shredded on her bed, prosecutors said.
State prosecutor Erich Habitzl confirmed the discovery -- first reported in the Kurier daily -- but said that there was nothing he could do for the relatives.
Good for her!
