A WOMAN dubbed the “Ice Killer” by the Austrian media has confessed in court to murdering two men and setting their sawn-up body parts in cement in the cellar of her ice cream parlour.

At times breaking into tears, Goidsargi Estibaliz Carranza Zabala, who has joint Spanish-Mexican citizenship, told the hearing in Vienna how she shot and sliced up with a chain saw her ex-husband in 2008 and then, in 2010, her new partner.

At first freezing the body parts in the apartment that also served as a store room for the ice cream parlour, she concealed them in chunks of concrete that she mixed up in the cellar of her “Schleckeria” shop in the Austrian capital. The grisly remains were discovered by chance during maintenance work in June 2011. After going on the run to Italy, Carranza was captured several days afterwards and later extradited.

Carranza shot ex-husband Holger Holz – who she said was violent, lazy and a bully who refused to move out after their divorce – at close range with a .22-calibre Beretta pistol three times in the head as he worked on his computer. “I never thought I would be able to go through with it,” Carranza, wearing a grey dress and glasses, told the packed courtroom. “It was 3 pm. There were children outside, it was nice weather, someone must have heard.”

Prosecutors in Vienna dubbed Goidsargi Estibaliz ‘Esti’ Carranza ‘singularly cold-blooded’ as they described how the men in her life were killed, their bodies hacked up with a chain saw, bagged into plastic rubbish sacks and then cemented in concrete next to the ice cream tubs in the cellar of her cafe, bottom right.

“I thought the police would come. Then my mobile phone rang. It was the ice cream parlour, saying they needed me to come over.” After several failed attempts to dispose of the corpse, including the “crazy idea” of setting fire to it, Carranza finally decided to resort to a chain saw. “I cleaned and cleaned in the days afterwards,” she told the court.

But her new relationship with Manfred Hinterberger, an ice cream salesman some 20 years her senior, quickly deteriorated until she felt “like in a prison … like my head was in a plastic bag”.

Before killing him she took shooting lessons as well as a course in mixing concrete at a local hardware store. She shot him as he slept after a drunken argument in November 2010 with the same Beretta. “He turned his face to the wall and started snoring … I was so angry. I had the gun under the mattress. I took it out, loaded and shot,” Carranza told the court. In the morning she “asked him to forgive me for what I had done”. She then proceeded to dispose of the body.

When arrested, Carranza was two months pregnant by another man, whom she married in prison in March this year. The baby was born in January but the boy, called Roland after the father, was immediately taken away from her and is now reportedly being looked after by her parents in Barcelona. “He is totally different. He is very gentle, the opposite of macho,” Carranza said of her new husband. “He would not bring me into such a situation.”

“This woman has two faces,” prosecutor Petra Freh told the packed courtroom. “She will try to play here the part of someone well-behaved, who would never do something like this. My task is to show you her other side … That she is a singularly cold-blooded and unscrupulous killer … Do not be fooled.”

A psychiatric report commissioned by the court said that Carranza, now in a unit for the “mentally abnormal”, was dangerous and was like a “princess … who just wants to be ‘rescued’ by a man”. The trial was scheduled to last several days, with around 50 witnesses and seven experts due to testify.


Mother of Five ‘Dropped Off Daughter, Six, at McDonald’s to Get an Ice Cream and Then Drove Off’


An Arizona mother has been charged with child abuse after police said she abandoned her six-year-old daughter at a Phoenix McDonald’s Wednesday night.

Lucy Parra, 23, brought little Everlyn to the fast food eatery near 23rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road to get an ice cream, but when the girl went out into the parking lot, her mother’s car was nowhere to be found, according to investigators.

Court documents show that after about 15 minutes of searching the area for Parra, McDonald’s workers called police. Parra returned to look for her child 40 minutes after she first left, while officers were on the scene. The woman, who has a history of drug problems, was arrested on one count of child abuse. Further investigation has revealed that the 23-year-old mother of five left two other kids at a family member’s home.

The incident happened just hours after Parra was released from Tent City Jail where she stayed for a week for driving with a suspended license, CBS5 reported.

Parra picked up her daughter from Westwood Elementary School Wednesday afternoon, even though she was not supposed to be in contact with her after losing custody of her children, according to officials. Just before 8pm, the mother took the first-grader to get a treat at McDonald’s, and then took off while the girl was inside, police said.

Workers at the restaurant say the girl was crying and visibly upset at the idea of being abandoned. She also appeared very hungry. According to McDonald’s worker Yesenia Bojorquez, Everyln told her that she hasn’t eaten anything since school lunch. When Parra returned, Bojorquez said she appeared intoxicated and claimed that she has never left the parking lot, which only had four cars at the time, none of them Parra’s.

Relatives said Parra has a history of meth addiction. Two of her children live with their fathers, and her mother is the legal guardian of two others, including Everlyn. The six-year-old and the other child are now in the custody of Child Protective Services.

During her court appearance, a judge placed Parra under house arrest and ordered her to wear a monitoring device after the 23-year-old said she would like to grab her children and flee to Mexico, NBC12 reported. Parra is due back in court November 28.

Inmate Dupes Guards by Putting Milk Cartons in Jail Uniform, Escapes in Pink Underwear

KNXV_Adan_OrdunoPHOENIX – An inmate escaped from the Lower Buckeye Jail Sunday, tasting freedom for a few hours before Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies recaptured him. Now his mom is speaking out and Sheriff Joe Arpaio is talking about how 26-year-old Adan Orduno pulled it off.

Adan Orduno has a lengthy criminal record and faces charges of firing a gun at police from a getaway car after a robbery at a Phoenix jewelry store last year. He was being held in the Lower Buckeye Jail’s Psychiatric Unit when he made his getaway. This jail has hundreds of security cameras and it is only seven years old.

So how did Adan Orduno escape? “He gathered many empty boxes of milk, used the black and white stripes over the milk cartons to indicate he was sleeping there to fool our detention officers,” says Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Orduno pried open some ceiling tiles and went through crawl spaces to get out of the jail and climbed over a barbed-wire fence to freedom. The sheriff says a man driving by, who claims he knew nothing about the escape, gave Orduno a ride to his mom’s house near 28th Street and Thomas. Orduno was only wearing pink underwear.

“He came and told me he got bailed out. I helped him get some clothes, cause he said he was going to leave and talk to me later, and he hugged me for a while,” says Regina Saldana, Orduno’s mother. Orduno left to meet someone at 7th Avenue and McDowell. Deputies got a tip and arrested him without a fight. “He is young and he has a whole life ahead of him. I am just praying he gets the help he needs, when you see child that struggles, lend a helping hand you know,” says Saldana.

Meanwhile, the sheriff is focusing on the audacious escape. “To to me this is rather bizarre but nothing surprises me in these jails, I mean people escaped Alcatraz many years ago,” says Arpaio. “So I want to know how this occurred. I am happy to have them back, I do not want to have this happen again.”

Orduno has been transferred to the higher-security Fourth Avenue Jail, where he will face escape charges in addition to his other crimes.

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. – Altamonte Springs police have charged a mother with child neglect after they say she left her child in the car for almost a hour while going into Publix to steal cheese.

Police said Anna Alvarez, 31, was being questioned by police Friday night after Publix employees said she picked up three packages of cheese and put them in her purse. Police were called to the Publix and said they were going to let Alvarez off before they realized she had committed another crime.

During questioning, Alvarez told police about her 5-month-old child being in her car, according to the report.

When police approached the locked car, the windows were up and the child was sitting in a car seat crying and screaming loudly, according to the report. Police said in the report the child, “appeared to be physically upset and cold, due to the fact the child had no blanket and the temperature was decreasing.”

The child appeared to have been in the car since Alvarez walked into the store on State Road 434 at 7:20 p.m., until authorities brought her outside the store at 8:15 p.m. Police and employees said Alvarez only mentioned having a 3-year-old staying with grandparents, not another child.

Child Protective Services was contacted and the child’s father came to pick up the child. Alvarez was taken to Seminole County Jail where she was being held on $2,000 bond. Publix had originally requested to press charges but it’s not clear if the charges were filed.
