In an apartment in Essen, police forces found a dead 19-year-old on Tuesday night and took his 15-year-old brother into custody. Whether he is responsible for his brother's death is currently being examined, the police and public prosecutor announced on Tuesday.
A homicide squad was formed. The background to the fact was initially unclear. The police did not provide any information about the possible murder weapon and the injuries to the 19-year-old. Forensics were still on site Tuesday morning.
