    ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) - Police have detained a man who buried his dead mother in his basement and disguised himself as her to draw her retirement pension, a Turkish news agency reported Friday.




    Tipped off by suspicious bank employees, police detained Serafettin Gencel, 47, in his home after he tried to withdraw his dead mother's pension, Anatolia news agency reported.

    A bank employee had become suspicious upon hearing Gencel's male-sounding voice and notified the bank manager who told Gencel to come back in two days time for the money, Anatolia said. The manager secretly photographed him and called police who raided his home and detained him.

    The photo, which was released by Anatolia, showed Gencel dressed in a woman's overcoat and wearing a headscarf and stockings and carrying a walking stick.

    Gencel reportedly told police that his mother died two years ago of natural causes at the age of 68, and that he buried her body in his basement to carry on collecting her pension.

    Authorities exhumed the body and were conducting a forensic study into the woman's death.

    Gencel faces possible charges of fraud, suspicious death and conducting a burial without notifying authorities, Anatolia said.

    Gencel, who has previous convictions for armed robbery and carrying firearms, had withdrawn the equivalent of about $7,800 Cdn since his mother's death, Anatolia said.
