The mystery of the cross-bow killer in Passau, Bavaria, becomes more and more dense. After the discovery of the three bodies on Saturday morning in a hotel in the Bavarian town, two other lifeless bodies have now been found in the house of one of the victims. The possible correlations between the victims are investigated.

The German police are investigating the deaths of five people, three of whom were found dead in a country hotel in Bavaria, pierced by the arrows of a crossbow. A maid discovered the bodies and two crossbows in a room. It was a 53-year-old man and two women, aged 30 and 33, but the investigators have not yet established the relationship between the victims, if any. At the home of the thirty-year-old in northern Germany, a police search discovered the bodies of two other women.

The agents are investigating “possible correlations” between the dead in the hotel on the Ilz river, near Passau, and the bodies found in Gifhorn, 650 kilometers to the north. Autopsies of the three bodies found in Bavaria are underway. A hotel customer told the Passauer Neue Presse newspaper the night was completely quiet and nothing suspicious had been heard. The hotel manager said that the three dead, all Germans, had booked for three nights, without breakfast. The 33-year-old man and woman resided in Rhineland-Palatinate, western Germany.

Their room had a double bed and a single bed. According to the tabloid Bild the man and the 33-year-old were found hand in hand on the bed, hit in the head and chest, while the other woman lay on the floor in a pool of blood, with an arrow planted in her chest. Police seized a white pickup parked outside the hotel. A hotel client said that the man had a long white beard and the women dressed in black looked “weird”.
