Murder in Mönchengladbach-Odenkirchen
70-year-old woman found dead – homicide determined

On Saturday evening, the police in Mönchengladbach-Odenkirchen found a lifeless woman and a seriously injured woman. Investigators suspect a homicide. More details have now been announced.

An assassination commission had to be deployed again in Mönchengladbach because one person apparently died after using violence. As a police spokeswoman confirmed on Sunday morning, a dead person and a seriously injured person were found on Saturday evening in the Odenkirchen district of Mönchengladbach. Women were companions. It is presumed that it was a homicide and a homicide commission had been set up, it is said.

On Sunday afternoon, the prosecution and the police announced more details of the case: The deceased is a 70-year-old woman. She was found at 9.20 p.m. on Saturday in an apartment on Burgbongert Street in the Odenkirchen district. There was another 70-year-old man who was unconscious.

As indicated in a joint statement by the prosecution and the police, people from the private environment of the two women who had worried about them informed the police in the evening and summoned them to the building. In the apartment where the two septuagenarians lived together, the police found one of them dead; the other woman was alive but unconscious.

Rescuers were immediately called and took the unconscious woman to hospital. In the other 70-year-old man, an emergency doctor could only determine death.

The 70-year-old man, initially unconscious, is still hospitalized and receiving intensive care. The police say she is out of danger. According to the current state of the investigation, she is suspected of having killed her companion and then of having attempted suicide, said a police spokeswoman.

Prosecutors and police are still investigating the case.

There have been so many homicides in Mönchengladbach in the recent past that several homicide commissions are now deployed at the same time. The best-known case is that of the dead baby found in a bin on Carl-Diem-Strasse on March 28. The most recently used homicide commission is investigating the death of a 46-year-old woman. She was so badly injured in a clash on May 1 in Bonnenbroich-Geneicken that she died in a clinic a few days later.
