She had been walking to school from her home in Lazo, when he offered to give her a lift in his car. 

She was then raped, beaten and killed. 

He set her body on fire, but failed to destroy her remains. 


He showed the police how exactly he committed the crime. 

Earlier, teachers and locals had taken part in a frantic search for the missing child. 

Her scorched body was found in long grass, and she still wore her pink shoes. 

He singed his hands as he killed her. 

The former policeman was caught when he returned to the crime scene. 

Her death was initially linked with two others, but police say the other girls were killed by another murderer.

Such a sad story. its hurts me to think of the pain this child suffered just before her death. Benedikt Morak, I hope your prediction comes true for this man's life in prison.

All I need is a loaded gun and a chopper. Take him out into the forest and shoot him in the knees then leave him there for the wolves and bears to take care of.

in prison the inmates will quickly find out who they are and what they did. and this is one thing even the hardest criminal will not - tolerate-. if that might be the appropriate word. these 3 people will pray every day that this was their last night in jail. because they will receive 100 times worse than they did. and good so.
