Parents living in Aachen, Germany, set a trap for the man they suspected of sexually abusing their 12-year-old daughter.
The teenager’s mother made contact with him on social networks, making her believe that she was interested in him and arranged for him to meet in a backyard.
When the alleged rapist went to the scene, the couple, accompanied by an accomplice, waited for him armed with a knife and a club.
They then killed him.
The corpse of the man, aged 29, was discovered last week. The investigators immediately made the connection with the complaint of sexual abuse on a 12-year-old girl, who had been dismissed for lack of evidence.
The couple and his accomplice, aged 26, were arrested and placed in pre-trial detention.
