Two teenage girls have admitted to stabbing a classmate to death, according to authorities.

The victim, identified only by her first name Luise, didn’t return home after visiting a friend on Saturday.

A massive police search uncovered her body the following day in a forest near a former railway station in the western town of Freudenberg.

Speaking yesterday, Florian Locker, head of Koblenz police’s homicide department gave further updates on the two teenagers questioned in relation to the death.

Luise had been friends with her killers but the trio had fallen out, according to reports.

They all attended the same school with the 13-year-old in the same class as the victim.

Both suspects are too young to be held criminally responsible for their actions in Germany, where the age of criminal responsibility starts at 14.
