As the newspaper further reports, the woman killed should not be the owner of the vehicle. The owner is currently being sought.

In the afternoon, the Cobra unit of the Austrian police surrounded the house of a suspect, according to “Krone”, and an armored car is said to have been used. However, no contact could be made with the suspect there.

︎►Suddenly, a signal from the wanted person’s cell phone was registered when he dialed into the network in Horn in Lower Austria (approx. 6500 inhabitants). As a result, the mission was moved in the direction of Horn.

According to “Krone”, the suspect is said to be the ex-partner of the dead woman. The 60-year-old, allegedly also a hunter, is also said to be the father of the dead child. The couple is said to have only recently separated.
