Police said the popular British artist and photographer Saul Fletcher was found dead in what appears to be a murder-suicide.
It was reported that Fletcher’s daughter made the call to raise alarm about the incident at about 11.15 pm on Wednesday, July 22. She also claimed that her dad confessed on the phone about killing her mum.
When police went to his apartment in Berlin, they found the 53-year-old woman who had died from stab wounds while Fletcher had already fled the scene in his Porsche 911.
Four hours later, he was found in a holiday home he had on a plot of land that he owned near Rochowsee lake in Brandenburg.
Brandenburg police said there is no evidence of anyone else being involved in the double death, but they have launched an investigation to establish the exact circumstances of the apparent murder-suicide,
Fletcher, a self-taught photographer, and the artist had been living in Germany for the past 20 years. He was pictured with Pitt, 56, at the 2019 Venice Biennale art exhibition. Read here
