Pforzheim: Not a Culture-Enriching Rape, But Attempted Suicide?
The woman (29) who was seriously injured on the bank of the River Enz in Pforzheim probably WASN’T a victim of a crime, in contrast to what the police initially reported. Meanwhile, the officials assume that she wanted to take her own life.
A local woman found the 29-year-old in the middle of the night. At that time the woman was still conscious and complained about a man who followed her, sexually assaulted her, and finally pushed over a six-meter [20-foot] drop (BILD reported).
However, the police don’t believe the woman, who sustained severe back injuries. “There are strong indications that the young woman might have fallen over the six-meter-high wall to put an end to her life.” The investigators were only able to detect “accident-related injuries”.
According to the police, the 29-year-old is still hospitalized. “Her condition is still serious,” said a spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office in Pforzheim.
The exact circumstances of the incident will be looked into by an investigative group of 15 officials.
