Trier/Regensburg – The investigators searched intensively for Yosyp Haiosh, who is said to have murdered a refugee from Ukraine in a hotel room on March 26. Now officials were able to arrest the 34-year-old on a train near Regensburg.
The man is said to have killed a Ukrainian woman († 38) who had fled Ukraine with her family, including a daughter (13) and lived in Merzig. She was found dead on March 28th – in the bed box of a Trier hotel room.
According to the current knowledge, the 38-year-old is said to have taken the train from Merzig to Trier in Rhineland-Palatinate unaccompanied. There she met the 34-year-old she knew, who is said to have last lived in Poland. It was initially unclear why the meeting took place. A police spokesman: “Both rented a hotel room in downtown Trier. After that, for reasons that are not yet known, the crime happened there.”

The room was paid for in cash according to BILD information.
Hotel staff discovered the body of the 38-year-old during cleaning work. She is said to have been strangled. All of the woman’s personal belongings and clothing were not found. The investigators suspect that Yosyp Haiosh, also a Ukrainian citizen, disposed of them completely.
On the night of Saturday, around 0.20 a.m., the officers finally managed to catch the man on a train to Regensburg. He allowed himself to be arrested without resistance.
According to the police, he would then be brought before an investigating judge at the Regensburg District Court and arrested after the international arrest warrant had been issued. After all, the man will then be transferred to Trier, since the crime scene principle applies, according to which perpetrators are brought to justice there in whose area of responsibility the crime scene lies.
