A young Texas woman traveling in Germany was reportedly murdered inside a Hamburg hotel room in what investigators say may have been a ritualistic killing.
Brittany Nicole Keele, 23, of Pearland, Texas, left in June for Germany, where she was studying and living with a friend, MyFoxHouston.com reports.
Authorities say a 27-year-old student tourist from Greece killed Keele inside a Hamburg hotel room in August, stabbing the young woman 30 times before dismembering her body, according to German press accounts.
Police are still investigating Keele's connection to the man and a possible motive for the crime.
The suspect was taken to a hospital after he tried to jump to his death at an airport, the station reports.
