The 29-year-old Bulgarian 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.
