The dead man was a man, police spokesman Markus Dittrich announced on Tuesday. On Saturday, an angler initially fished a foot out of the water and raised the alarm.
Investigations in all directions
After the first body parts were recovered from the water, officers from the “Life/Life” department at the Vienna State Criminal Police Office took over the case. The discrepancies have now been clarified recently. Investigations are carried out in all directions: everything is conceivable, from a suicide victim to an accident to a violent crime.
The first discovery was made in the area of the former Black Paints, where the flow of the water slows down. This area of the Marchfeld Canal is very popular with anglers. Although the Marchfeld Canal is flooded with water from the Danube, there is a rake in front of the inlet. It is considered unlikely that the body got through this grille.
