Three found 'killed by crossbow' in German hotel

Three people found dead in German hotel with crossbow bolts in their bodies

German police are hoping that an autopsy will shed light on a tragedy in a Bavarian hotel where three guests were found dead with arrows in them and two crossbows lying beside their bodies, local broadcaster B24 reports.

The two female corpses were found in the town of Gifhorn, near the city of Hanover.

They are investigating possible links to the three people found dead at the hotel Passau, almost 700 kilometres away near the Austrian border, on Saturday.

They were met with a weird and horrifying scene - a 54-year-old man and two women, aged 30 and 33, dead with crossbow bolts through their mid-sections and two crossbows lying on the floor.

The hotel is by the Ilz river near Passau, about 650km (400 miles) south of Wittingen.

Hotel staff discovered the bodies in a room alongside two crossbows, the German news agency DPA reported.

Two of the weapons extinct within the killings had been found on Saturday, whereas a third became as soon as found unused in a ranking on Monday, in response to police.

The Wittingen discovery came on Monday, as police investigated the hotel room deaths.

"There is now no indication of the possible participation of other persons" Passau police wrote in a statement released on Monday.

The bodies were discovered by a hotel employee on Saturday afternoon.

A police spokesperson confirmed that the two corpses in Wittingen, Lower Saxony, had not been killed by crossbow bolts, "the modus operandi can not be compared".

But a guest who was staying there the night in question told Passauer Neue Presse: 'It was a completely quiet night'.

The town is a popular tourist spot, especially for hikers heading into the Bavarian Forest.
