Human head found in German court

On Tuesday, a severed human head was found outside a courthouse in the western German city of Bonn.

In the evening, passersby reported the presence of a human body part in front of the court entrance, a police spokesman said.

“Shortly after we concluded that it was a human head,” the spokesperson said.

Subsequently, a stump presumably of the same corpse was found nearby, on the banks of the Rhine, near the historic customs house.

A distance of about one kilometer separates the two sites where the parts of the body were found.

Police arrested a 38-year-old suspect nearby who they said was known to be involved in drug offenses.

Police added that they believe the suspected perpetrator and the unidentified victim are homeless.
