The body of an Austrian teenager, believed to have been shot last week by a friend who then enlisted the help of his grandfather in getting rid of the corpse, has been found in Hungary.

The public prosecutor's office in Graz said that the body was found wrapped in a plastic bag, buried near the Austrian border in Szentgotthard-Rabafüzes.

An autopsy will be carried out on Wednesday to confirm that it is the missing 16-year-old Marcel S from Carinthia.

Meanwhile more details are starting to emerge about the 16-year-old boy, Sebastian S, who was arrested after Marcel’s murder in a middle-class area of Graz.

His mother, Gabi S, has spoken to the Heute newspaper and said that a few hours after the shooting her son and her father turned up in Bad Vöslau (Lower Austria), where she was having a spa holiday. “My boy stood before me, howling and trembling all over,” she said.

She said that he confessed to the crime - and told her that he had shot his friend Marcel after he tried to force him, at gunpoint, to rape a 14-year-old girl whom they had invited over.

“This is a huge nightmare for me,” Gabi said. “I think my son was drugged - he is not a murderer.”

However, parents who sent their children to a Kindergarten which Gabi ran in Graz say that official complaints were made about Sebastian’s behaviour when he was younger.

Sebastian and his grandfather are both in custody.
