The scene of the crime: Parts of the set from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" are still standing at the bay
The 48-year-old family man Martin G. from Sennfeld in Lower Franconia was shot dead on a charter yacht in Wallilabou Bay on the night of March 3rd. The act caused consternation in the scene - and raised many questions.
The YACHT spoke to Stefanie Frei, a fellow sailor, about these questions. She describes the course of the crime, and it becomes clear that the man sleeping on deck had no chance: "You just shot like that." After that, the crew was robbed and the perpetrators disappeared.
The case is fraught with a number of peculiarities. There were other yachts in the immediate vicinity, just a few meters away - but nobody wants to hear anything, nobody came to help. Nobody responded to an emergency call either. And then the victims fell into the mills of the South Caribbean authorities.
Stefanie Frei reports on the events of the dramatic night and the events before and after. It was a nightmare that she carries around with her to this day: "I still can't quite believe that it really happened. Usually something like that only happens in the film."
