Almost ten years after the disappearance of a woman in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg, the police have apparently cleared up the criminal case.

A 43-year-old was arrested on Thursday when he entered Hamburg Airport, the police said.

According to the public prosecutor's office, he is accused of a homicide.

The body parts discovered by an angler in mid-January are the remains of a woman who has been missing since 2013.

Disappeared from Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg in 2013

The 29-year-old disappeared from Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg in 2013.

The officers then arrested a former lover of the woman on suspicion of manslaughter, investigators found a sharp gun on the 34-year-old.

But the police were unsuccessful in the search for the woman's body in a nature reserve at the time, and the man had to be released because there was no strong suspicion of a crime.

About two weeks ago, an angler discovered a bag with human remains in the Ernst August Canal in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg.

First, the angler had fished a woman's shoe with bones out of the water.

Through extensive forensic examinations, the remains of the 29-year-old could be assigned.

Now the woman's former lover is again considered an urgent suspect, and the public prosecutor's office has issued an arrest warrant for the man.
