Waltraud Gruseck: The False Soprano
The police secured search warrants allowing them to scour Waltraud's house and the surrounding area after a neighbor had reported seeing Waltraud throwing plastic bags in the river in the middle of the night.
What investigators found surprised even hardened detectives. Inside the house, police stumbled upon what can best be described as an amateur construction project gone awry. The good news for the investigators was that they found Mr. Hilss' body in the middle of the mess of concrete, but, unfortunately, only bits and pieces of his corpse remained intact.
A team of police divers then found plastic bags that contained the ashes and charred remnants of bones that had not burned, which Waltraud had dumped into the Elz River in front of their house.
