A woman (25) was found dead in her flat in Backnang on Tuesday afternoon. According to initial investigations, she died by force – the suspect is the woman’s partner (29).
The dead woman’s partner had been involved in a traffic accident on a country road at about 12.45 p.m. and then fled on foot. The police searched for the man and arrested him at around 4.30 p.m. – when he then made the tip-off about the dead 25-year-old woman to the police.
The man was temporarily arrested, the woman’s flat was checked – and her body was found.
The criminal investigation department started investigating the circumstances of the death on Tuesday afternoon. The first investigations and findings in the flat strengthened the suspicion that the woman died by force. The 29-year-old man is suspected of the crime. The suspect, who was born in Syria, is to be brought before a magistrate on Wednesday.
The investigation is being conducted in close consultation with the Stuttgart public prosecutor’s office and is ongoing.
