Autopsy of dead vaccinator from Austria confirms suspicion of suicide

The doctor's relatives had requested the autopsy, the preliminary result of which has now been published. However, the written report and the chemical-toxicological test results would still take some time, the public prosecutor said, according to the APA news agency.

The Austrian vaccinator was found dead in her practice in the Vöcklabruck district on Friday. Among other things, she had reported on her website from months of intimidation to death threats "from the Covid measures and anti-vaccination scene" - and finally closed her practice, citing this. The doctor wrote on Twitter at the end of June that working conditions “like the ones we have experienced over the past few months” cannot be expected of anyone. She was reportedly under police protection for an extended period.

In the case, the Munich public prosecutor's office is also investigating "against a male person on suspicion of insult and threat". A spokeswoman for the authority did not want to give any further details on Wednesday. According to a media report, the man from Upper Bavaria threatened the 36-year-old vaccinator with torture and murder. In addition, an advertisement was also issued in Berlin, as reported by the newspapers of the Bayern media group, citing the public prosecutor's office in Wels, Austria.

The federal government was "deeply dismayed" by the doctor's death on Wednesday. "Threats, violence and hate speech are to be condemned in the strongest terms, especially when they are directed against medical staff and doctors," said Deputy Government Spokesman Wolfgang Büchner in Berlin. The German security authorities would cooperate with the Austrian authorities in the investigation.
