The body of a 28-year-old female hitchhiker from Germany, Sophia Lösche (right), has been found in Spain following the arrest of a Moroccan Muslim truck driver believed to have been involved in her murder.
Breitbart (h/t Maria J) German Sophia Lösche went missing on the 14th of June after she got in a truck while attempting to hitchhike from Leipzig to Amberg in Bavaria, according to investigators. Her body was found Thursday evening near a petrol station just outside the Spanish city of Bilbao, Bavarian tabloid Tz reports.
Earlier this week, police arrested a 40-year-old truck driver in Spain in connection with the young woman’s disappearance who some in the German media claimed was a Moroccan national.
The finding of the woman’s body came after the 40-year-old allegedly admitted to placing her body near a petrol station. The body was said to have evidence of violence and burn marks when police discovered it. The truck driver apparently wanted to burn it to try to eliminate any evidence that could incriminate him.
News soon emerged that Lösche had previously been involved with volunteering for a pro-open borders activist group in Greece where she helped with a project called “No borders kitchen” on the island of Lesvos (see videos below).
Her brother Andreas Lösche, a member of the Green party and a local politician in the Bavarian city of Bamberg, wrote after the arrest of the 40-year-old trucker: “”
The 51-year-old politician claimed that right-wing “racists” and others were using the disappearance of his sister for political gain and that he had received death threats as a result of his comments saying: “Already, some of us are getting hate comments right through to death threats from right-wing people.”
The killing is not the first time a pro-migrant activist has been allegedly murdered by a foreign national in Germany. In December 2016, 19-year-old Maria Ladenburger was raped and murdered by Afghan asylum seeker Hussein Khavari who claimed to be underage but was later revealed to be an adult. He was given a life sentence for the murder in March 2018.
