After the discovery of a dead 15-year-old in Salzgitter, two young people are considered urgent suspects. The public prosecutor’s office in Braunschweig announced on Wednesday that it was a 13-year-old and a 14-year-old. Based on the overall circumstances, a homicide can be assumed. An arrest warrant for murder had been requested against the 14-year-old.
According to the authorities, the 13-year-old, who has not yet reached the age of criminal responsibility, cannot be imprisoned, so the youth welfare office was involved in his case. The motive for the act has not yet been finally clarified, but is “in the personal sphere”. The two suspects are Germans from Salzgitter. The public prosecutor’s office initially did not provide any further information on the case.
On Tuesday, the police found the body of a young female while looking for a girl in a green area in the Fredenberg district. The girl has been missing since Sunday evening.
Up to 50 officers meticulously searched for traces in the afternoon, and a drone was also used. The spokesman did not rule out a violent crime.
