Eine ruchlose Tat

In 1953 15-year-old Annette was raped and murdered on her way home from the neighbouring village. At the site of the murder, next to a nowadays more or less disused path in the forest, a monument was erected. Today it is almost forgotten.
Back in the day the police immediately suspected and arrested a homeless guy who was passing through the area. His image was huge on the cover of the newspaper. In the end it turned out that the murderer was a well-respected local from Annette's village.
