The lifeless body of a 12-year-old girl was found in the woods of the German town of Freudenberg. The police began to investigate the person or persons who killed the child, and the terrible truth emerged. Two children aged 12 and 13 are suspected of killing the 12-year-old boy.

The murdered 12-year-old girl was named 'Louise' for confidentiality reasons. Louise was found near the bike path in the woods on Sunday after a large-scale search by police. It was determined that the girl had been stabbed and died from blood loss.


Police said the two suspects, aged 12 and 13, confessed to committing this gruesome murder that took place in the western town of Freudenberg.

Authorities did not disclose their identity, gender and whether they knew the deceased child from school, as the suspects were also underage. However, prosecutor Mario Mannweiler stated that the suspects were girls, according to the Reuters report. Also, Mannweiler speculates that the perpetrators were from the murdered child's close circle.

On the other hand, according to the prosecutor's statement, Louise was stabbed to death and there were no traces of gunshot wounds on her body. Prosecutor Mannweiler added that there was no sexual assault.

The suspects are under the age of criminal responsibility, which is 14 in Germany. That's why the two children were not arrested, but they are in custody.

Residents of the small town about 80 km east of Cologne are still in shock and flags were lowered at half-mast in the area. The governor of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, which includes the town of Freudenberg, said he was "appalled". Hendrik Wuest said, “It is incomprehensible and unbearable that children can commit such terrible acts.” said.
