An unidentified man who identifies as a “woman” has admitted to the brutal murder of an elderly man in the Braunau district of Austria. The assailant, a 24 year-old nurse from Slovakia, repeatedly stabbed his 82 year-old patient last week, resulting in the elderly man’s death from internal bleeding.
While the motive for the crime was initially unclear, it was later revealed that the nurse attacked the bedridden pensioner after the topic of the nurse’s gender identity was brought up. He went to the kitchen and retrieved multiple knives, stabbing the man five times in the chest and an unknown amount of times in the man’s head. Following the attack, “Paul” called the victim’s stepdaughter, who immediately alerted the police.
On Friday afternoon, police interrogated the nurse on what took place prior to the murder. He immediately admitted to the killing, and claimed the attack had been the result of the victim “teasing” him due to his gender identity.
