19-year-old suspect confesses

The 19-year-old suspect confessed on Thursday to the murder of a jogger in Mannedorf, a quiet village located about 20 km southeast of Zurich, Switzerland.

The attack happened Tuesday evening in Alma Park, a popular picnic spot on Lake Zurich. The suspect was “running around naked, screaming and physically attacking other people,” according to police. The victim, whose name has not been released, was a 35-year-old Swiss woman. A 50-year-old Swiss man was also slightly injured during the attack.

The cantonal public prosecutor requested the provisional detention of this 19-year-old Swiss citizen whose name has not been revealed. “There are strong suspicions of intentional homicide against the suspect who confessed to this crime during his interrogation by the public prosecutor,” said the police. According to the same Source, “no violent crime in the canton of Zurich was recorded in his criminal record”.

No known link between attacker and victims

“At this stage of our knowledge, the alleged perpetrator did not know either the deceased woman or the slightly injured man” and “the context, possible motives and exact course of events” are subject to further investigation , underlined the police.

Mannedorf, which has a population of 12,000, is an upscale village with lakeside villas. Its mayor, Wolfgang Annighofer, said security would be increased around the park, which has reopened to the public. Next to a port, the park surrounds Villa Alma, a neo-Gothic residence built for industrialist Emil Staub, who transformed the family business into Switzerland’s largest leather production factory.
