Three Hungarian men charged with stealing the dead body of late German billionaire Friedrich Karl Flick in 2008 and demanding a ransom attend the trial at the Pest Central District Court in Budapest on December 12, 2012. 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.
