    The police closed in on the rape suspect, an Afghan migrant, after they found his DNA on a black scarf reportedly belonging to Maria Ladenburger near the path. Her abandoned bicycle was also found at the scene.

    The murdered medical student had volunteered at a asylum centre in her spare time.

    A very particular strand of hair was discovered on a nearby bush. Police studied CCTV from a local tram to find persons with similar hair, which led them to the teenage suspect.

    The strand of hair was partially dyed, said prosecutor Dieter Inhofer at Sunday’s press conference. CCTV footage showed the suspect wearing a rather conspicuous undercut hairstyle with certain portions dyed blonde.

    Details of the shocking murder that had happened on October 16, were only released after his arrest on Friday. According to police, he has confessed.

    Maria, the daughter of Dr Clemens Ladenburger, a lawyer to the legal director of the European Commission, was on her way back from a party in the university city when she was sexually assaulted and killed on the edge of a cycle path behind Schwarzwald station.

    According to The International Business Times, the unnamed refugee arrived in Germany last year as an unaccompanied minor and lived with a local family in the city. He had no previous convictions.

    Police are currently investigating whether the suspect is responsible for yet another death of a young woman in the area. Carolin G., 27, was raped and murdered at the beginning of November while jogging in Endinge, just 18 miles away from Freiburg.

    This murder wil deliver yet another stinging blow to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door migrant policy.
