Viersen (NRW) – The young girl is smiling into the camera friendly. Dark hair, brown eyes. She is Iuliana Elena R. (15), nicknamed Julia. Her life ended brutally on Monday. On this sunny spring day, the girl was stabbed to death in the park called “Casinogarten” in Viersen.
Shortly afterwards, between shrubs and flowers, there are investigators in forensics overalls, investigating the crime scene. The homicide commission’s investigators are trying to reconstruct what had happened on the lawn.
Gravely injured, the victim staggered towards two homeless people, said: “I am dying, I am dying”. Then, she collapsed.
As the girl did not have any papers with her, her identity was initially unclear. In the evening, it turned out: it is Iulia R. (15).
The girl is from Bucharest (Romania), and living with her parents in a suburb of Viersen in a three-storey building. She had a boyfriend and went to school in Viersen. Police officers escorted her parents from the precinct to the crime scene, where blood stains were still to be seen in the evening.
The mother kept crying “Iuliana” and collapsed crying at the crime scene. When they came home, the parents were still crying. They allowed Bild to show a photo of their murdered daughter.
“Casinogarten” in downtown Viersen (North Rhine Westphalia) is a meeting point for drinkers. The homeless Ilja Hansen (47) and his girlfriend come here often, yesterday, too. Ilja Hansen tells Bild: “We were sitting in the park, having a beer. Then we heard loud screams.“

Moments later, the victim approached them. Hansen: “My girlfriend and me ran to her. She fell on her knees, into our arms. She was covered in blood and covered in slash wounds. We immediately called police and fire department.“
The homicide commission was searching for a perpetrator, who, according to police, was of “northern African appearance” and had “black, oily hair“. A helicopter and a large police force were deployed, searching for the perpetrator. Specialized “mantrailer“ dogs were to take on his trace.
When the officers wanted to check a suspicious Turk (25), he fled. Later, the man, who has got a previous police record, turned himself in at a precinct. A police spokesman: “His possible involvement in the deed is currently investigated.“
A mother who was visiting the park with her child and allegedly witnessed the deed might be able to identify the perpetrator.
The background of the deed is still completely unclear.
