It is still unclear why three Germans died in Switzerland. The police are waiting for the autopsy result.
The circumstances of the death of a German and his two children in Switzerland are still unclear. As a spokesman for the Thurgau cantonal police reported on Monday, the outcome of the autopsy is awaited. A precise point in time when the result will be available is still unclear. The dead are a 38-year-old, a four-year-old boy and a seven-year-old girl. The exact place of origin remained unclear.
The bodies were discovered Sunday in an apartment in Eschenz near Stein am Rhein in the canton of Thurgau, about 30 kilometers north of Winterthur.
According to the police, the German had been living in northern Switzerland for a long time. According to speculation in media reports, the father could have killed his children first and then himself. The news portal “20min” claims to have reached the mother of the children by phone. She said her ex-boyfriend brought the kids every other weekend. “He was mentally stricken and could not cope with the separation.”
