Manhunt for Suspected Family Killer

German Police have issued an international arrest warrant for a 37-year-old Turkish national, Ali Göbelek, suspected of carrying out a gruesome five-fold murder in the southern German town of Augsburg on Monday. Göbelek is believed to have stabbed to death his wife, their seven-year-old daughter, his brother-in-law, mother-in-law as well as a 26-year-old Czech friend of the family. Police discovered the five blood-soaked bodies strewn throughout the double-storey house after a friend of the family alerted them. Augsburg police spokesman Markus Schwarz said on Tuesday that domestic strife was probably the reason behind the crime, but added that police were exploring all possibilities. Augsburg's criminal police branch have a now built a 32-member special commission named after the murdered daughter Ela to investigate the murders.
