Six weeks after the violent death of a student from the district of Rosenheim in Upper Bavaria, the police arrested a suspect.

The adolescent, aged between 18 and 21, is now in custody, as the police headquarters in Upper Bavaria South announced on Saturday.

When asked, the investigators gave neither the exact age nor the charge against the young man.

The body of the 23-year-old was recovered from the Prien in early October after a visit to a disco in Aschau, not far from Lake Chiemsee.

The Soko "Club" had searched intensively for the perpetrator.
