Elmshorn – What happened behind the red brick facade on the third floor on Friedenstrasse?
The police are still investigating at full speed, but are holding back with information. The fact is: two young women (19, 23) were killed in the apartment. Neighbors report that they were Eritreans.
The emergency call came in at 1:20 p.m. on Saturday. Several patrol cars arrive, paramedics, two emergency doctors.
And soon thereafter also forensic doctors from the UKE in Hamburg. Because it quickly becomes clear: nothing can be done, the injuries are too serious.
Before that, however, police officers who were the first to arrive at the crime scene ran through the pools of blood. Hoping to be able to help the victims. To be able to distinguish their shoeprints from those of the murderer, the soles are photographed.
While the officers from the homicide squad secure clues in the apartment and carry out blood-smeared objects, colleagues search the area for possible perpetrators.

Since he is an urgent suspect, a judge issues an arrest warrant for double murder. However, the motive remains in the dark.
