A 24 year old Gambian 'asylum seeker' has been arrested for the murder of an American Au Pair in Austria.
The hunt for a suspect was helped drastically when police were able to find DNA at the scene which belonged to an asylum seeker already in their database. The 24-year-old Gambian Abdou I. was no stranger to police. In fact the asylum seeker had already been involved on the wrong side of the law and had been accused of sexual misconduct with minors back in 2014.
Abdou I. was captured by police in an asylum centre in Switzerland. Police used the GPS location of photos he posted online to find his exact location. He is said to have hidden among fellow migrants following the murder before making his way to Bern where he was eventually caught.
