Sacked employee took revenge on grave of boss’s daughter

A 44-year-old woman in southern Sweden who was fired from her job took revenge on her former boss by desecrating her daughter's grave.

The grave was subjected to a series of vandalism attacks over a two year period – lanterns were stolen, plants turned over and other decorations stolen or damaged, according to local newspaper Helsingborgs Dagblad.

Suspicions were soon directed against a 44-year-old woman who had once been in the employ of the local businesswoman.

When the 44-year-old was released from her temporary position at the firm, she had sworn a curse at her former boss along the lines of: “you will pay for the rest of your life,” the newspaper reports.

The police were called in and surveillance was put in place to try to catch the culprit red-handed. After some time the ploy worked and the woman was captured on film desecrating the deceased woman’s final resting place.

The 44-year-old woman has now been charged with disturbing the peace of the dead and has in police interviews partially confessed to the offence, the newspaper reports.

The dead woman’s mother has approximated that her daughter’s grave has been vandalised on a total of 28 occasions over the two year period, a detail that the 44-year-old contests.
