A woman accused of making a porn movie in a local church has been caught after an informant tipped off police that he recognised her by her breasts after an appeal for information.
Local priest Bernhard Pauer had raised the alarm after one of his parishioners in the Austrian municipality of Hoersching, in Upper Austria, said he had spotted the inside of the church in the clip while surfing the internet.
He told local media that he had reported it instantly to police who investigated on charges of offending religious feeling and desecration of a church.
The pictures which show the woman opening her top and caressing her breasts inside the church but do not show her head, only her hands in which she is holding what appears to be a Bible and a rosary, and initially police were unsure as to her identity.
But after the images were shown in local media, together with an appeal for information, police were given the lead that allowed them to track down and arrest a 24-year-old local woman.
According to detectives she had made similar films on the internet under the name "Babsi" and it had been easy to see that she was also the young woman in the church. Although not named the woman had been born in Poland but moved to Austria when she was a young girl with her family.
The news of the porn movies also caused heated debate in Catholic Austria as to whether or not the church would need to be reconsecrated, but in the end it was decided that it was not necessary as the woman's sins had not been enough to drive out God.
"We have identified a suspect. She has already been questioned and has made a full confession," said police spokesman David Furtnerteich.
