Because of the crime, four suspects are being investigated for jointly committed murder. The main suspect is a 15-year-old German-Turk from Gelsenkirchen who fled after the crime on February 10th and was arrested at his home the following morning. According to the investigation, he is said to have stabbed the victim and killed her. According to the information, the other suspects are a 14-year-old German-Greek from Herne and two 14- and 15-year-old Syrians from Gelsenkirchen.
