Authorities have arrested a man from Syria suspected of murdering a teenage girl who went missing last week in Germany, according to reports.
On July 12, the 17-year-old victim told her parents she was taking a bus from her town of Asperg to nearby Ludwigsburg to do some shopping.
When the girl never came home, her parents reported her missing, and a full-scale manhunt was launched.
On Saturday, a 35-year-old Syrian national was apprehended and his home and vehicle were searched, Bild reports.
Investigators said they believed the victim had been in suspect's car at some point.
On Sunday, a body was found at the Leudelsbach sewage treatment plant, less than 5 kilometers from the girl's home.
Authorities confirmed on Monday the body was that of the missing girl.
No further details have been released about the suspect at the time of this writing.
An investigation is ongoing.
"Foreigners who commit acts of violence in Germany are most often of Syrian origin," Junge Freiheit reports.
"Last year, 37.5 percent of all suspected violent criminals were foreigners. Among them, Syrians were most strongly represented with 12.2 percent."
The revolution will not be televised.
