After the death of a 14-year-old on a school site in Lohr am Main, the suspect is to be brought before the judge in Würzburg today. A police patrol arrested him yesterday evening shortly after the boy was found.

The victim and the suspect “in their teens” come from the Main-Spessart district. The background to the crime is still completely unclear, said a spokesman for the Würzburg police headquarters late in the evening. The police now know of three people who were there.

Attempts at resuscitation were unsuccessful

A 14-year-old came to the police station in Lohr yesterday afternoon around 4:30 p.m. and reported that he had learned that a friend of his had killed a young person on the grounds of the school center. A police patrol then found the lifeless teenager with external injuries in a small green area next to the school. Attempts at resuscitation were unsuccessful and an emergency doctor pronounced her dead.

Next to the school center with a high school, middle school, sports field and basketball court is a small green area with a park bench, trees and bushes, and there is a fast food restaurant nearby. There are still school holidays in Bavaria, but the green area is a popular meeting place for young people, said the police spokesman.

Forensics still at work

The teenager’s body was still lying next to a bush late in the evening and the forensic team was still at work. The suspect was arrested around 6 p.m. and was still at the Lohr police station that evening. The police spokesman could not say whether he provided any information about the crime. On the orders of the Würzburg public prosecutor’s office, he will be brought before the investigating judge on Saturday, who will then decide on possible pre-trial detention.
