Reports are saying that Austrian ice cream shop owner Estibaliz Carranza, 38, will be transferred from her female prison to a men’s prison because she is too dangerous to be locked up with other women. She is accused of killing two men: her lover and prior to that, her ex-husband who she called “violent and lazy.”
In 2008, Carranza walked up behind her ex-husband, Holger Holz, as he worked at his computer, pressed a .22-caliber Beretta against the back of his head and squeezed the trigger.
She confessed that she was furious when Holz wouldn’t leave their Vienna home after their divorce. She also called him “violent and lazy.”
As noted, she later killed her lover as well and the cut both up into bits and buried the parts in her ice cream shop under the concrete and according to the NY Post she hung up air-fresheners to hide the odor of death. They only caught her because the plumbing got jammed up and so plumbers had to dig up stuff and found the remains and called the police after which Carranza fled to Italy where she was caught and extradited to Austria to stand trial.
The press has dubbed the femme fatale “the ice cream killer” and she seems to be embracing her fame, even writing a memoir about her murderous exploits. Here is more from the NY Post:
Two years later, Carranza whacked her ice cream salesman boyfriend, Manfred Hinterberger, in a similar fashion.
She pumped several bullets into the back of his head when she went to confront him about an alleged affair he was having, but he was passed out drunk.
After disposing of his corpse, she got a manicure to repair her damaged nails.
In June 2011, plumbers stumbled upon the remains of both victims as they were doing work in the cellar of Carranza’s ice cream shop.
Carranza went on the lam to Italy, but was captured by authorities several days later.
She was two months pregnant by a third man at the time of her arrest and has since gotten married to him while in prison.
She has written a memoir titled, “My Two Lives: The True Story of the Ice Lady
