Abstract

The death by drowning of a 25-year-old man is reported, whose putrescent body was found drifting on the surface of an artificial lake. The deceased was dressed in a coat of chain-mail and trousers of the same material. The chain-mail clothing, which had a weight of 20 kg, reminded one of a knight's armour; it had been made by the wearer himself. Around the neck there were several turns of a chain running down to the legs and tying them together. According to the police investigations it is to be assumed that the man went out on the lake in a rubber boat and then pierced the air chambers of the boat with a knife. The possible background of the case in context with the special liking for fantasy games is discussed.
