A body was found in the semi-detached house in Upper Bavaria that was destroyed by an explosion.

The police announced on Friday.

Previously, "Bild" reported on the discovery of a woman's corpse.

The identity of the person has not yet been determined.

An autopsy should be carried out on Friday.

The exact cause of the explosion has not yet been clarified.

A police spokeswoman said that the great force of the detonation in the house implied a gas explosion.

The house had gas heating.

On Thursday, at least one gas bottle was recovered from the rubble.

This was still intact.

The explosion had destroyed a semi-detached house in Rohrbach an der Ilm (Pfaffenhofen an der Ilm district) on Thursday.

Before the body was found, a couple was still missing - a 55-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman.

Three other people who lived there were not at home at the time of the explosion, according to police.

In the other half of the semi-detached house, which was also badly damaged, two people were slightly injured.

Another mystery is a fatal traffic accident that occurred on Thursday at 12.50 p.m., around 20 minutes after the house exploded. On the B300 in Schrobenhausen, 30 kilometers away, a car drove into an oncoming truck, the driver of which was seriously injured. The car was reported to the address of the house that had exploded. There was a gas bottle in the car, as the police confirmed on Friday. The “Donaukurier” reported on this first. One person died in the car, the body burned beyond recognition, according to the police.
