Burned corpse in Hamm: police arrest ex-boyfriend of dead 17-year-old

A missing 17-year-old is found dead ten days after she went missing. According to the autopsy, the teenager died of "massive violence against the neck". Now the police are arresting the victim's ex-boyfriend on suspicion of manslaughter.

The police in Dortmund arrested the youth's 26-year-old ex-boyfriend after finding the burned body of a 17-year-old. A spokesman for the public prosecutor said various clues that could not yet be discussed led the investigators to him. The couple are said to have split a week before the 17-year-old's disappearance. Her parents reported her missing on June 14.

The 26-year-old had already been questioned as a witness after the teenager's disappearance. It is said that he was surprised by his arrest. The public prosecutor's office has applied for an arrest warrant against him on suspicion of manslaughter. He was due to be brought before a magistrate the same day.

The autopsy of the corpse had shown that the young woman did not die from the flames, but from "massive violence against the neck". According to the police, a cyclist discovered the burning body on Friday morning around 5.30 a.m. on a path in the "Am Tibaum" nature reserve west of Hamm. The 17-year-old came from the Märkische district and had lived there with her parents. "We assume that she had been dead for several days and that the body was burned there to remove traces," said a spokesman for the Dortmund public prosecutor's office.
