Vohburg (dpa / lby) - After the discovery of a child's corpse in the Danube, there are first witnesses. By Tuesday morning, the police had received five tips. "But the big breakthrough is not there now," said police spokesman Michael Graf. It was immediately clear that some of the information had nothing to do with the dead boy, who was around four to six years old.
Last week, a canoeist discovered the body in the water near Vohburg in Upper Bavaria (district of Pfaffenhofen/Ilm). The dead boy was wrapped up and had probably been in the river for a long time. The police in Ingolstadt formed an investigation team and since then have searched the Danube between Vohburg and Ingolstadt several times without finding any significant new tracks.
Now the investigators hope that the coroner in Munich can provide further information. However, the detailed examinations after the autopsy take longer. Police don't expect more results until next week. Among other things, it is to be examined whether traces of violence can be detected on the corpse. So far it is unclear whether the child was killed or died naturally.
