New arrest in Kührer investigation

By Rachael Williams

Previous suspect in the Julia Kührer murder investigation Michael K has been rearrested in light of new DNA evidence which places him at the scene of the crime.

Julia Kührer went missing at the age of 16 in 2006 and her remains were discovered 5 years later in a cellar in Dietmannsdorf in Lower Austria.

The owner of the property Michael K was arrested following the discovery, but then released after 48 hours due to lack of evidence connecting him to the victim.

Since then investigations in many different directions have turned up little evidence.

On Wednesday evening (5 December 2012) the Federal Criminal Police reported „a connection between Michael K (51) and the victim has been made."

He has been placed at the crime scene after his DNA was found on charred ceiling fragments which had been positioned close to the body.

The DNA was recovered from a piece of dandruff and analysed. The analysis verified that the evidence belonged to Michael K and he was taken in to be investigated that evening.

Speaker for the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Korneuburg Freidrich Köhl answered questions from the Austrian Press Agency about the investigation. The findings of the investigation were finalised last week and the District Attorney will use the new evidence at Michael K’s hearing which will take place on Thursday.
