The men are alleged to have stolen Flick's coffin in November 2008 from his mausoleum at a cemetery in Velden, in southern Austria, after succeeding in shifting aside a 100-kilogramme (220-pound) slab of granite. The suspects demanded a six-million-euro (7.5-million USD) ransom from Flick's family and received two payments of 100,000 euros each, according to Austrian police at the time.
