For the killed twelve-year-old Luise from Freudenberg in the Siegerland a memorial service will take place next Wednesday. All those who would like to participate are invited to the auditorium of the Esther-Bejarano-Gesamtschule, according to a funeral notice published on Saturday in the "Siegener Zeitung". "There are no words to comprehend the incomprehensible. For us, the world stands still," reads a photo of the girl who died violently about a week ago.
According to the complaint, the commemoration ceremony will be celebrated on 22 March at 18 p.m. "in a close personal circle" in the Evangelical Church in Freudenberg and transmitted from there as an audio stream to the auditorium of the comprehensive school. "We ask for your understanding that the family and friends would like to accompany Luise there in peace on her last trip." A police spokesman said that they wanted to ensure with a mission at the church that the funeral service would not be disturbed.
Two twelve and 13-year-old girls had confessed to the violence. With several knife wounds, they are said to have killed Luise last week, according to previously announced findings, last Saturday in a remote forest on the border of Rhineland-Palatinate and North Rhine-Westphalia. On Sunday, the girl was found dead during a search operation.
In the case, the police and the public prosecutor's office keep a low profile with information on the background, especially with information on the alleged perpetrators and refer to their privacy protection. The girls are not yet culpable because of their young age and cannot be brought to justice.
Wüst expresses his condolences
Meanwhile, NRW Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst signed a book of condolence for Luise on Saturday. He came in the morning to the Evangelical Church of the small town in North Rhine-Westphalia. Wüst spoke briefly with four pastors and thanked them for their commitment.
Immediately after the incident became known, the CDU politician was dismayed by the death of the girl. "It pulls the rug out from under your feet."
