On Saturday evening (at 21:35) in the city of Linz, a 47-year-old native of Chechnya was detained, whom the Austrian special services consider the perpetrator of the murder.

And on Sunday, the second suspect was taken into custody. He was at the scene of the crime and was first questioned as a witness.

However, investigators noticed contradictions in his testimony and transferred to the status of a suspect in involvement in the murder.

Police said the victim was an asylum seeker. The suspect lives in Austria and is originally from the Chechnya region.
