In the case of a 14-year-old girl found dead in Duisburg, an arrest warrant for manslaughter has been issued against her friend.
The police and the public prosecutor announced.
The 14-year-old is therefore urgently suspected of having killed the girl.
With reference to the age of the adolescents, the investigators did not provide any information on the motive and the exact relationship between the two.
Police officers discovered the body of the girl who had previously been reported missing in the basement of a demolished building in Duisburg early on Saturday evening.
During the autopsy of the dead, "blunt violence on the head" was found to be the cause of death.
The search for clues at the site led the investigators to believe that the girl was violently killed on the ground floor of the ruin.
The 14-year-old was then buried in the basement under a pile of rubble.
Alleged perpetrator got caught up in contradictions
The girl's brother had already reported a missing person to the police on Friday and gave information about her boyfriend of the same age.
He was then picked up in Düsseldorf and initially given to his parents.
Both he and the missing person's brother gave indications that the 14-year-old had occasionally stayed on the site of the ruin.
During the questioning, the friend of the dead became entangled in contradictions and was arrested.
