Dead family from Senzig: Police complete investigations

In early December, a father killed his three children, his wife and then himself. In the meantime, the police have also clarified the last open question in the case.

Potsdam – After the violent death of a family of five from Königs Wusterhausen in Brandenburg, the police investigation into the case has been completed.

It was still unclear whether the deadly shots were actually fired from the handgun found in the house. “According to the latest results, the weapon found is the murder weapon,” senior public prosecutor Gernot Bantleon told dpa on Tuesday.

According to the investigation, the father’s wife was not involved in the crime. The public prosecutor’s office now wants to examine the files again and then discontinue the proceedings if necessary. That will be decided in the coming weeks, said Bantleon.

Farewell letter: Fear of arrest

At the beginning of December, five bodies were discovered in a detached house in the Senzig district: three children aged four, eight and ten, a 40-year-old man and his wife of the same age. The father of the family is said to have first killed the children and his wife and then himself with a firearm. In a farewell letter, the father is said to have expressed his concern about being arrested because he had his wife’s vaccination certificate forged.

According to the Brandenburg police, anti-Semitism was one of the reasons for the crime. The basis for this assessment was the evaluation of chat histories on the man’s cell phone – after that he was convinced that there was a Jewish world conspiracy in connection with the state vaccination campaign.

“It was a bundle of motives,” Bantleon said. In his farewell letter, the 40-year-old father wrote, in addition to his fear of being arrested, that he was afraid that his children would be forcibly vaccinated and taken away from him.

Victim counseling centers in Brandenburg are demanding that the case be fully clarified, especially with a view to the extent to which corona-denying and right-wing networks were involved in the radicalization of the perpetrator. dpa
