Honour killing story
attempted murder: 22 December 2015
Residence: Kaltenkirchen (near Hamburg)
Perpetrator: unclear, probably from the family
Maybe this act is not an honour killing, and maybe this case does not belong in this archive.
In the first instance, it is "only" an attempted murder: on December 22, 2015, Ana takes her garbage can from the street to the courtyard of the house. An unsub approaches from behind, pours flammable liquid over her and sets her on fire. She comes to a special clinic with burns and survives.
The perpetrator is on the run. Initially it is said that the crime took place in the Russian environment, but the police say: "We are talking about German citizens". Later it is said - probably from the neighbourhood - that it is about "a different cultural background, in which it is better not to interfere". Then there are the rumours that they are Chechens.
Ana is not the real name of the woman. We would be very happy with clues!
If it turns out that there is no honor motive, we will, of course, remove the case from the archive again.
