Accident or murder?

Researchers at the University of Stuttgart are providing essential prerequisites for the reopening of a criminal case

A biomechanical simulation method that was newly developed at the University of Stuttgart as well as an expert opinion produced by a scientist from the University of Stuttgart in the field of thermodynamics provided the basis for the reopening of a murder case: In 2008, an 87-year-old woman was found dead in her bathtub. After the criminal investigation, the caretaker of the housing complex was charged and convicted as a murderer. The court has now ordered the release of the now 62-year-old defendant, who has been in prison for the past 13 years.
