In Vienna, a 17-year-old boy reported to police for attacking three sleeping homeless people last summer. Two victims died of stab wounds.
The boy stated that he was the wanted homeless killer and that he had heard voices urging him to commit the violence , the newspaper Die Presse wrote.
The murder weapon is a kitchen knife
He reported to the police station yesterday with a lawyer because he was having trouble with his conscience. The murder weapon, a kitchen knife, has now been seized. According to the newspaper, he hid it in the sofa of his parental home.
The victims were stabbed in July and August, in the space of just under a month. Two men aged 55 and 56 died. A 51-year-old woman was seriously injured but survived.
The police already suspected that one person might be behind the attacks. Aid organizations responded to the stabbing incidents with additional night shelter capacity for homeless people.
