Three bodies found impaled with crossbow bolts in German hotel room


German police are hoping that an autopsy will shed light on a tragedy in a Bavarian hotel where three guests were found dead with arrows in them and two crossbows lying beside their bodies, local broadcaster B24 reports.

Investigators are still trying to determine the relationship between the three, found dead on Saturday, and what exactly happened in the room in a Passau hotel near the Austrian border.

Police said they didn't immediately have details of the identity of the women found in a search of the apartment in Wittingen, in northern Germany, and what happened to them.

The three were a 33-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man from Rhineland-Palatinate state and a 30-year-old woman from Lower Saxony, who had jointly booked the room on Friday.
