Girls, 12 and 13, ‘lured classmate into woods to stab her to death’

The victim, identified only by her first name Luise, didn’t return home after visiting a friend on Saturday.

A massive police search uncovered her body the following day in a forest near a former railway station in the western town of Freudenberg.

Speaking yesterday, Florian Locker, head of Koblenz police’s homicide department gave further updates on the two teenagers questioned in relation to the death.

He said the two girls, aged 12 and 13, ‘made statements about the matter and in the end admitted the crime.’

Luise had been friends with her killers but the trio had fallen out, according to reports.

They all attended the same school with the 13-year-old in the same class as the victim.

Both suspects are too young to be held criminally responsible for their actions in Germany, where the age of criminal responsibility starts at 14.

The knife, or knives, involved in the stabbing are yet to be located.

Luise was found with a number of stab wounds and died from a huge loss of blood.

Prosecutors told the press they are assuming the ‘crime was committed by two children from the girl’s circle of acquaintances’.

They were taken into a youth welfare office – a local government department specifically tasked with the support and protection of children, adolescents and families.
