Linz: Tunisian kills couple out of hatred for FPÖ
July 1, 2017
After the brutal murder of an elderly couple early Friday morning in Linz, the motive for the crime is now resolved: The suspect — a 54-year-old Muslim from Tunisia — committed the carnage out of hatred for the FPÖ [Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party], according to police. He projected many bad experiences that he had had over the past couple of years in Austria onto the party, and wanted to set a warning example.
So the bloody double homicide in Linz had a political motive, as the National Police Director for Upper Austria Andreas Pilsl explained in an off-the-record-conversation on Saturday afternoon.
The double homicide suspect, who had been living in Austria since 1989, was sentenced for animal abuse in 2012, following a complaint by a local FPÖ alderman. From that moment on, he blamed the FPÖ for all negative personal experiences; for example, when, in his opinion, he was treated badly at the job centre, or once when his benefits were cut.
Alleged that the victims were close to the party
The suspected double murderer alleged that his two victims were to connected with the FPÖ — which in fact wasn’t even true, according to Pilsl. The 54-year-old suspect accurately planned his deed, even though he knew that the two pensioners were not responsible for his situation, according to the National Police Director.
