    German tabloid Bild reported that friends of the family expressed their shock over her death. They said the relationship between Ahmed and Cynthia appeared to be going smoothly. “She wore hijab for Ahmed,” a friend of Cynthia’s father told Bild. “And she learned to speak Arabic out of love for him.”

    When the two began their relationship four months ago, Ahmed T already knew that he was going to be deported. His asylum seeker application had been denied long ago.

    So he tried to convince his new girlfriend to go with him to Tunisia. But friends of the family say that Cynthia declined his invitation.

    Some speculate that because she did not want to move to Tunisia with him, she was killed. Last Monday an arrest warrant was issued for her boyfriend signalling a final deportation order. Less than 48 hours later, the situation between the two had escalated.

    He stabbed the young woman by ramming a kitchen knife through her neck, her lungs, her hands and her back more than ten times.

    Cynthia, a diligent nurse had been living with her parents, She had her own area upstairs with living room and bedroom. During the escalating dispute Ahmed stabbed the young woman with a long kitchen knife in her bed – on World Women’s Day.

    Ahmed had registered himself under three different identities and had therefore cashed in three times on state benefits. Since his entry into Germany in October 2017, he has  committed a long list of transgressions including “bodily injury, drugs, menace and coercion”. He also served a prison sentence for theft last October.

    “She meant so much to me and I miss her a lot,” says her cousin Patrick Schopp. “I will keep her in my memory as this fun-loving person who never had anything bad to say about anyone and who was very helpful to everyone.”

    Her uncle said: “She lived for her profession. Also wanted to study to become a midwife. She was happy, liked to celebrate. ”

    The funeral march was not entirely peacful either. During a memorial service at the Liebfrauenkirche, where an ecumenical prayer was said for the 21-year-old woman, there was an incident.

    About twenty people came running out of the church where a service had been scheduled in a panic. They were members of the funeral march who were at the church early.

    They came out distraught, calling for the police and crying, because apparently someone had stood in front of the altar with arms stretched out, yelling “Allahu Akhbar” loudly, as well as other things that people could not understand, causing panic and fear.

    The police apprehended the man a hundred meters down the road. He was taken to the police station and questioned. The 29-year-old “Southerner” was interrogated by police, a police spokesman said on Sunday. His personal details was also taken down. But there is no explanation for his behavior, the spokesman added. He may have been “mentally confused”.

    The police are currently puzzling over “the background of the action”.

        An ‘educated guess’ would be that he wanted her to marry him, either in Germany or if it was easier, under duress in his homeland … once he had a German spouse his pathway to permanent residence would have been a foregone conclusion. There’s a popular slang term among would-be migrants for gullible females who provide legitimate status via marriage or relationships … it’s ‘White Gold’.

      I visited Worms a few years ago, as part of my travels in the former Holy Roman Empire, in which the city once played a pivotal role in the middle ages. It was a great disappointment … I had obviously suspected the loss of old buildings caused by WWII bombing, but the rebuilt centre is a soulless and anonymous collection of nondescript structures which seems to have also afflicted the inhabitants. Most obvious was the fact that kebab take-outs were in such abundance while it was impossible to find a traditional pub or bar. I eventually settled for a quiet hotel-restaurant run by a couple of good old guys who lamented the present state of affairs and it was obvious even they were being careful about how they placed their words.
