A man who murdered his housemate and buried him in a tomb in their garden has finally confessed to the crime four years later, after his guilty conscience became too much bear. Sebastian Bendou, 36, stabbed and battered his housemate Christophe Borgye in 2009 along with an accomplice in a brutal pre-planned attack after a row over money.
He then hid his body in a homemade brick tomb topped with concrete in the garden of the house
in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire. The pair thought they had got away with murder after police treated the victim’s disappearance as a routine missing person’s inquiry and assumed he had returned to his native France.
But hotel worker Bendou could not live with the ‘strain’ of his guilt and in May last year suddenly travelled 200 miles from his new home in Dumfries, Scotland back to the town.
He called police from a phone box and told them: ‘This is too much for my mind.’ The next day he led officers to the house where the body of airline steward Borgye still lay. Officers broke open the tomb inside a shed to find it contained a low brick wall used to hide the corpse with three separate layers of concrete placed over the body to bury it.
