Two minors confess to fatally stabbing 12-year-old girl

Two minors have confessed to stabbing a 12-year-old girl to death in Germany on Tuesday (March 14).

The case shocked the country as the girl, Luise, who went missing on Saturday (March 11), was found dead the following day in a wooded area near her home.

According to Prosecutor Mario Mannweiler, Luise died of numerous knife wounds and the resulting loss of blood. He added that there was “no indication of a sexual offense.”

However, on Tuesday (March 14), two minor girls, aged 13 and 13, confessed to the murder.

Florian Locker, Head of Koblenz Police’s Homicide Department, said that the two girls made a statement about the matter and admitted the crime.

Prosecutor Mannweiler said that the two girls and Luise knew each other.

The authorities declined to give further details about the case because of the age of the suspects, who are too young to be held criminally responsible for their actions.

“This is a very unusual and shocking act, even for us,” Mannweiler told reporters.

In Germany, the age of criminal responsibility starts at 14 years old. RZSP/Expat Media
