Germany: 14-year-old Turkish “honour killer” had already attempted to stab a classmate in his school

Even the investigators are stunned by the crime: near Heidelberg, a 14-year-old stabbed a boy one year younger to death. According to current information, the crime was planned. There are also first clues about the motive.The 13-year-old boy in Sinsheim near Heidelberg was probably killed out of jealousy, according to initial findings by investigators. However, investigations into the motive are still ongoing, said Siegfried Kollmar of the Mannheim Criminal Investigation Department. A 14-year-old is suspected of having murdered the boy with several knife wounds. According to the public prosecutor’s office, the suspect was remanded in custody. The juvenile is accused of the murder motive of insidiousness, said public prosecutor Andreas Herrgen. He faces up to ten years in juvenile detention. So far, he has not made any statements about the accusations.

According to the investigation, both had contact with another child who was spotted at the scene of the crime by the alarmed police officers. This had also been the reason for the alleged jealous quarrels. However, the investigators did not give any details because the child was under the age of criminal responsibility. However, they were deeply shocked by the crime.According to the investigations so far, the 13-year-old had been lured to a meeting point at the edge of a forest the day before. After a ” little walk “, the 14-year-old stabbed the boy. The investigators assume that the crime was deliberate and that the 14-year-old had taken the kitchen knife to the meeting. Presumably there was a short fight. The CID official did not say how many stabbings were being carried out. “We still have a lot to investigate,” Kollmar said. They are still waiting for the post mortem report, and mobile phones are being checked.According to investigators, the 14-year-old – unlike the other two boys – is already known to the police. Last year, he had been at the focus by the police for an attempted homicide. In November, he had attacked and seriously injured a classmate at his school in neighbouring Östringen with a knife. As he was only 13 years old at the time, he was under the age of criminal responsibility. However, Kollmar said that the measures taken in such cases had all taken place. The youth welfare office and the family court were informed.

Victim and perpetrator both have a Turkish migration background and hold both German and Turkish citizenship. –
