The suspect arrested on Tuesday in the case of the killed six-year-old Joel from Pragsdorf near Neubrandenburg came into the focus of investigators on the day of the crime. In the evening, there were vague statements in the village that the 14-year-old had made untrue statements in connection with the disappearance of the six-year-old, police said at a press conference.
Pragsdorf - In addition, according to the findings, he was the last one who had contact with Joel.
That's why there was a search warrant that night. It was an initial suspicion, but not a very hard initial suspicion. He had not yet been enough to present a suspect to the public. Joel was killed on September 14 and found in a bush next to a soccer field on the outskirts of the village. The place where it was found is also said to have been the scene of the crime. Dpa
