Vohburg (dpa / lby) - After the discovery of a dead boy in the Danube, the police are looking for witnesses with the help of leaflets. The investigators wanted to distribute these primarily to fishing clubs and rowing clubs near the site "to keep the case more present," said a police spokesman on Thursday. So far there has been no new information about the identity of the boy found near Vohburg (district of Pfaffenhofen/Ilm) and the circumstances of his death.
In mid-May, a canoeist discovered the body of the four to six-year-old boy in the Danube. The dead boy was wrapped up and, according to police, had been in the water for a long time - possibly more than two to three months. He was therefore probably thrown into the Danube between Ingolstadt and Vohburg.
The Kripo initially did not want to commit to a crime, but formed an investigative team. In early June, investigators used body-sniffing dogs to search the river for evidence - but without success.
A police spokesman said that a review of missing persons cases in Germany and neighboring countries had not brought any matches. "But we haven't checked everything yet." The results of the autopsy are still pending.
