Prien am Chiemsee (dpa / lby) - The suspect in the case of a killed student in Upper Bavaria was initially sought by the police as a witness. According to dpa information, it is a jogger whom the police had questioned as a witness at the end of October as part of the investigation. Initially, several media had reported about it. Police and prosecutor spokesmen declined to comment on the reports when asked on Thursday.
According to the police at the time, the investigators did not receive any further relevant information about the crime when questioning the jogger. Later, however, the suspicion against the man became so strong that he was arrested on November 18th. The Soko "Club" had previously searched intensively for the perpetrator and asked nationwide for the help of witnesses in the television program "Aktenzeichen XY...".
