Crossbow murders: Two woman killed by arrows after three dead in hotel

Avellino

On Saturday morning, a room cleaner found their bodies, with two crossbows nearby plus a third unused crossbow in a bag.

Passau prosecutor Walter Feiler told the German news agency dpa later Monday that the couple on the bed had several bolts in them and was found holding hands.

The 53-year-old man and the 33-year-old woman were from Rhineland-Palatinate state in south-central Germany while the 30-year-old was from Mecklenburg West Pomerania in north-eastern Germany.

The man and the older woman were lying together in bed, while the younger woman was lying on the floor.

They said it is not clear what their relationship was, what happened inside the hotel room or how exactly the three died.

Police said they didn't immediately have details of the identity of the women found in a search of the apartment in Wittingen, in northern Germany, and what happened to them.

The three had all checked into the hotel on the Ilz river near Passau by the Austrian border on Friday.

By Saturday evening police announced that there was no further evidence at the guesthouse and it reopened for business.

The other woman was lying on the floor with a bolt in her chest.

"We assume that no other people were involved in the deaths", Gaisbauer said, adding that autopsy results were expected on Tuesday.

The group left an impression on other guests, with the man wearing a formal suit and sporting a long white beard and his female companions dressed entirely in black.

Some German media reported that the trio had booked to stay for three nights, without breakfast, and had already been there for two days when they were discovered.

According to the German Shooting Sport and Archery Federation, there are no restrictions on anyone over the age of 18 acquiring a crossbow in Germany.
