19-year-old dead in car trunk in Bavaria: man arrested

19-year-old dead in car trunk in Bavaria: man arrested

Investigators suspect that the 55-year-old man killed the young woman. The 19-year-old's body was found in a car in an underground car park in Regensburg.

German police arrested a man after a woman's body was found in the trunk of a car parked in an underground parking lot in the city of Regensburg, Bavaria. Investigators suspect that the 55-year-old man killed the young woman. Police spokesman Michael Zaschka said on Sunday that the prosecutor's office must now decide whether to appear before an investigating judge. He did not mention the suspect's relationship with the victim.

According to research conducted by Bayern Media Group, the arrested person is said to be someone from the 19-year-old's private environment, but not from her family. “The case is still at a very early stage,” Zachka explained. For this reason, he was unable to provide any information about how the young woman from the Levant region of Upper Palatinate died. Forensics are expected to examine the body on Sunday.

Passersby noticed a car with a smashed window

According to police, passersby reported on Saturday morning a car with a smashed side window in the underground parking lot of a hardware store in Regensburg. The patrol examined the car and discovered the deceased woman in the trunk. The police cordoned off the site.

Forensic experts searched the garage for evidence. Later, an undertaker recovered the body of the 19-year-old. Investigators conducted interviews with the young woman's parents and witnesses. In the evening, they arrested the 55-year-old suspect.

According to police, the car is registered in the name of the 19-year-old's parents. It was initially unknown how long he had been in the underground car park. In any case, the young woman's disappearance was not reported. According to information from the Bild newspaper, she was said to have been seen on Friday. (APA/DPA)
