A 28-year-old Romanian man confessed to the murder of his girlfriend. This has been the 25th murdered woman in Austria in 2021.
During the interrogations, the man that dropped the body of a young woman just in front of the Villach district administration on monday, has confessed to being the one that murdered her.

The murderer believed that the district administration building is the hospital
Why did the man drive the victim’s body to the official building instead of going to the hospital? Could she have been saved?
