An arrest was made at 6am on Wednesday morning, and by lunchtime of the same day, Mirco´s body was also found. A 46 year old family man of three children, was arrested. Nobody knew who he was or where he was from at that point; all I knew was that Mirco´s body had been found, and I felt a very strong pang of sadness….. I had so hoped……
This man apparently seemed relieved when the police arrived to take him away; he´d obviously been waiting for it to happen, as the psychologists explained that a person committing such a crime is too coward to own up, although according to neighbours where he lived, he appeared to be well integrated in his family life, just nobody had the slightest idea that he could have been a murderer ! There is even a local policeman who lives next door to him, who had discussed the disappearance of Mirco at a party, and did not have a clue !
After this man ( he has been named Olaf H. ) had been heard and Mirco´s body found, the replay of events of the 3rd September 2010 came to light,and these are shocking ! Olaf H. claims that occupational stress motivated him to seek someone weaker than himself and give him the feeling of control , after his boss had rattled him that afternoon on the phone. He drove around aimlessly for a long while, until at around 10pm he came across Mirco riding alongside the road on his bicycle. He overtook the bicycle and stopped ahead and waited until Mirco rode by. This is the point the bicycle was found, and where the important witness noticed the car.
Olaf H. drove approx. 12 kilometers until he came to a forest; undressed the boy and sexually abused him. Realizing he could not just let the boy go, he strangled him and left the naked body lying in the undergrowth. He then drove off and on his way dumped some of the clothing in one place and more elsewhere, and threw the mobile phone out the car window again elsewhere. He then drove home in the early hours of the morning of the 4th September. His wife and children at home did not have a clue; they had been told he was doing important work that had to do with his job.
It has also now come to light , as to how the police “found” the VW passat they were looking for. It was a leased company car, driven by Olaf H. until the end of October 2010, and was then replaced when the lease expired. The car was then to be sold and taken off the German registration system, and was traced as being on it´s way to Russia. That deal however never went through, and it was bought up by someone in Luxemburg. When it was registered there, the reg details popped up on the German system, and was tracked down at Frankfurt airport. It´s new owner had gone off to Bali on holiday and parked it there.
