The victim was elderly, yes.
But was she truly innocent?
Before I make that determination, I’d like to know what she was doing between 1941 and 1945.
Police in the German city of Jena have arrested a 23-year-old asylum seeker from Afghanistan following the discovery of the body of an 87-year-old German woman believed to have been murdered.
The body of the German pensioner was discovered on Saturday morning in a cellar in Jena-Winzerla with police believing the woman had been murdered. An arrest warrant was drawn up on Sunday evening with police managing to arrest the 23-year-old Afghan migrant, a neighbour of the woman according to Thüringer Allgemeine.
Police spokesman Patrick Martin commented on the case to German tabloid Bild, saying: “The way in which the woman died is currently being determined in one section. Also, it must be clarified whether and what involvement the suspect had in the homicidal offence.”
The 87-year-old had been missing for two days prior to the discovery of her body as her relatives had previously turned to the police for help in finding her.
