And was suspected of killing their daughter — possibly faking her own death, police and prosecutors say.
The case of a German-Iraqi woman living in the southern city of Ingolstadt, named as Shahraban K by the German newspaper Bild, has shocked many in Germany. Her parents traveled from Munich to Inglestadt when she stopped answering their calls — and found her car and body on Aug. 16.
Police have initiated and issued an investigation A preliminary statement About a homicide, saying it appears the woman was “the victim of a violent crime.” But doubts about her identity quickly arose after DNA and fingerprint evidence did not match the missing woman, and police heard “rumors” that the missing woman had been seen driving in the local area, police spokesman Andreas Eichel said. In an interview.
A day later, police determined “completely new circumstances” during their investigation and arrested the missing 23-year-old, on suspicion of murdering the 23-year-old Kosovan man. Police said in a statement.
victim Named in German media Algerian Khadija O, also 23, who investigators say was “strikingly similar” to the missing woman.
At this time, the authorities did not say the reason for the murder.
Now they believe that the suspects came up with a plan to find someone who could pass for the young woman, “who wanted to go into hiding because of a family dispute” and therefore decided to fake her own death, according to a statement from the prosecutor on Monday.
Police say they are believed to be the suspect “chatted with several young women” who tried to lure them into meetings by looking like him online and making false promises.
On August 16, two suspects went to the Heilbronn area in the neighboring state of Baden-Württemberg to pick up the victim from her home, police said. They then drove him to a wooded area and stabbed him multiple times before driving back to Ingolstadt, where they left the body in the back of a car.
Although the two suspects, now 24, have been in custody since August on suspicion of murder, a district court late last week issued arrest warrants for them for the more serious offense of murder, which carries a life sentence.
Investigation is ongoing.
