Two teenagers killed elderly women in the Lubusz Voivodeship because they wanted to get rich. The first time they stole seven zlotys.
They searched for elderly women living alone, observed their habits, then broke in, robbed and killed them. The police have evidence that the victims of two young men were at least two people – a 75-year-old and an 82-year-old. – We collected very strong evidence that allowed us to identify and arrest the perpetrators – said the police operations officer.
Two brutal murders of women shocked the inhabitants of neighboring villages in the Lubuskie Voivodeship. One woman was stabbed to death, the other was strangled. Now the police have solved last year’s crimes. It turned out that the killers of the old ladies were their neighbors. A 19-year-old and just under 17. Everyone knew them there. None of them have ever been in trouble with the law.
According to the police, they killed him because they wanted to get rich. They stole seven zlotys from the first victim, several thousand zlotys from the second one. – The investigation took some time. This was due to long and laborious collection of evidence – says Łukasz Gospodarek from the District Prosecutor’s Office in Gorzów Wielkopolski. – We had no monitoring records there, we had no witness statements. There was really very poor evidence there – adds sub-inspector Marcin Maludy from the Provincial Police Headquarters in Gorzów Wielkopolski.
The perpetrators were found thanks to the analysis of shoe prints and DNA at the crime scenes. – These were very complicated cases in terms of detection – admits the police operations officer.
Those arrested were also charged with attempting to murder another woman – an 85-year-old woman. – These young men were already inside the woman’s apartment, but they were scared away by random people, passers-by, who were near her property at that time – explains the deputy inspector. Marcin Maludy.
Criminalists have no doubt that if the bandits had not been arrested, they would have continued killing. – If they did this act once, they may have liked what they experienced and that’s why they came back to it – notes Dr. Hab. Paweł Waszkiewicz from the Department of Forensic Science at the University of Warsaw. It is possible that there are more victims of young killers. – We will investigate whether these two young men are responsible for potential other murders – emphasizes sub-inspector. Marcin Maludy. Police are investigating several mysterious deaths of elderly people in the area. He does not rule out the exhumation of the bodies.
