A 49-year-old Tunisian man is suspected in Austria of murdering a 32-year-old Hungarian woman and her 15-year-old daughter, who is the woman’s partner and is on the run, Vienna police spokeswoman Irina Steirer said on Saturday.

The woman and her daughter were found in their home in Vienna on Thursday afternoon. At the autopsy, foreign handedness was established, indicating that the women’s necks were hit by an external impact. According to the Kronen Zeitung, they were strangled. The police are treating the incident as a crime, and the investigation is ongoing.

The murder came to light after the seven- and nine-year-old sons of the Hungarian woman arrived alone at a doctor’s office. The doctor tried to reach the mother, and after that failed, he informed the police. The police found the bodies lying on their stomachs in the closed, darkened bedroom in Vienna’s Mariahilf district. The doctor who arrived at the scene could only determine the state of death.

The boys said that by the time they got up, the man had already disappeared. The police visited the man’s residence, but did not find him at home. Currently circulating.
