The police initially did not provide any information about why the 17-year-old is considered a suspect. The on-site investigations had shown that they were going out from him, said a spokesman. A possible motive was also initially unclear.
The police had been called to the house in Munich’s Bogenhausen district on Sunday morning. The act probably happened during the night, said the spokesman. Rescue workers tried in vain to reanimate the girl. On Sunday lunchtime there was a major police operation in the east of Munich. A hundred searched the area, according to the police, this is routine in a homicide.
As is customary in such cases, the girl’s body is to be autopsied. According to the police, it was still unclear when the autopsy would take place.
