Case in "Aktenzeichen XY": man killed in Wiesbaden – who shot René K.?

It was Wednesday morning, July 14, 2021, when around 9:30 a.m. a passer-by discovered the body of René K. in the Mainz-Kastel district of Wiesbaden in the area of ​​an allotment garden below an underpass. For the subsequent search for clues, the police briefly interrupted rail traffic and specialists were called in. The 41-year-old had been shot. But by whom? Even today, the officials are groping in the dark as far as the perpetrator is concerned.

The fact is: René K. was killed by two shots the night before. The autopsy later revealed that. The DNA of an unknown man was found on his body: It is unclear whether the location is also the crime scene. During his lifetime, René K. had contacts in the rocker scene and spent several years in the Ziegenhain prison, where he trained as a cook in 2010. His nickname was "butcher" because he had learned the trade. He also worked as a debt collector and is said to have run a brothel until the Corona pandemic.

The night before he was killed he was at a car dealership, then at a gas station. Later he is said to have been with his ex-girlfriend, who lived only a kilometer away from where the body was later found. He spoke on the phone around 9 p.m. and then left the house.

Weeks later, the ex-girlfriend was targeted by the investigators. She is said to have used her landlady's car. In addition, someone is said to have driven them to the banks of the Main the next day. Did she want to make objects disappear? The police took her into custody on the basis of these findings. But no traces could be found either in the apartment or in the car. The police released the suspect. The public prosecutor's office and the criminal police have now offered a reward of 5,000 euros for information that helps to solve the crime.

On Wednesday, April 12 at 8:15 p.m., the case is the subject of the ZDF program "Aktenzeichen XY...unsolved". The investigators are hoping for new clues and in this context ask the viewers:
