Brad Pitt’s ‘friend’ Saul Fletcher is dead at 52 after allegedly killing the mother of his daughter.
German police have said Fletcher, a British artist and photographer, 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 11.15pm 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 artist had been living in Germany for the past 20 years. He was pictured with Pitt, 56, at the 2019 Venice Biennale art exhibition.
‘I use whatever I have to hand, trying to create something, trying to make something good out of something bad,’ Fletcher told the Financial Times into 2018.
