Crossbow killings: German police find two more bodies 600km from initial deaths

Three bodies found with crossbow wounds in German hotel room

The mystery began on Saturday when an employee in the guesthouse in Passau found three guests - a 53-year-old man, a 33-year-old woman and a 30-year-old woman - dead in a room with crossbow bolts in their bodies.

Police are not looking for anyone else in relation to the deaths and post-mortem examinations have been ordered.

Police were called to the hotel, which has not been named, in the southern town of Passau on Saturday, after a maid entered to find the dead bodies of a man and two women, Passauer Neue Press reported. The man and the older woman are from the state of Rhineland-Palatinate in southwestern Germany, while the younger woman was last registered as living in Wittingen in Lower Saxony, in the north of the country.

German police probing the deaths of three people shot with crossbow arrows in a Bavarian hotel have found two more female bodies in a flat 400 miles away.

Two crossbows were found Saturday. The 53-year-old was lying on a bed hand in hand with the 33-year-old, while the 30-year-old was discovered on the floor.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed the bill, surrounded by supporters and Georgia lawmakers, in his office Tuesday morning. Georgia is attractive to the companies, however, because the state provides up to 30 percent back in tax incentives.

Police in Bavaria added that they are now carrying out autopsies on the bodies, and that they have seized a white Renault pick-up which the victims drove to the hotel in.

Police haven't identified the victims, and their relationship isn't yet known.

Local media reports said the victims had booked a triple room on Friday for a three-day stay in the town of Passau. Hunting with bows or crossbows is banned in Germany.

The gruesome finding in a hotel popular among hikers in the outskirts of Passau was made by a maid who entered to clean the room. The second woman was found in a pool of blood on the floor.

A hotel guest said the man had a long white beard and the women were dressed in black, and described them as "strange".
