After a body was found in Kaltenkirchen, Schleswig-Holstein, a 17-year-old is in custody on suspicion of manslaughter.

There are indications that the victim's time of death may have been in the days before the body was found and that the crime could have taken place in Uetersen, a spokeswoman for the Itzehoe police department told the star. The identity of the victim has not yet been clarified. The police did not provide any further information, citing the ongoing investigation and the personal rights of the young suspect.
