A 29-year-old man showed up at an Austrian police station on Monday night and stunned the police with his confession: he had randomly killed a man to go to jail because he was not happy with his life.

The shocking episode occurred in a detachment in the city of


, near the border with Germany, in the western part of the country.

The young man arrived there to confess to the murder of

a 77-year-old man


According to the story of the alleged perpetrator, who

had no prior record

, the crime was planned weeks in advance and chose "an older person",

a neighbor of the same locality

, whom he lured to a forest area to stab him with a kitchen knife. 

The body of the victim, with whom

he had no previous relationship

, was found on Monday afternoon and it took a little longer to identify it because he had no known relatives and he lived alone.

"There was no chance that the victim could survive," police said in a statement about the injuries to his neck and chest.

"Several weeks ago he planned to kill someone to be imprisoned because he was not happy with his life," said the agents.

During questioning, the suspect was "calm and clear."

 The tests for ingestion of alcohol or drugs were negative, according to police officials, cited by the public radio ORF.

The suspect was arrested and transferred to a prison in


, the capital of the Tyrol region.
