Pragsdorf - But there is an urgent suspicion.
According to police, the German teenager was the last person to see the victim alive on September 14 at the soccer field in Pragsdorf. During interrogations, the 14-year-old had become entangled in contradictions, the police announced on Tuesday. In addition, DNA traces were found on the clothing of the deceased and on a knife - the alleged murder weapon - which can be assigned "with a very high probability to the 14-year-old", it said. The motive is still unclear. Dpa
