On March 26 1998, the 13-year-old

Tristan Brübach is brutally

murdered in Frankfurt/Main.

The police are still looking

for the unidentified murderer.

Tristan is murdered at the Liederbach tunnel in the Frankfurt suburb of Höchst. His murderer removes parts of skin and muscle tissue from the corpse which he then places inside the tunnel before leaving the scene of the crime.

Tristan’s murder case is one of the most cruel ones in German criminal history. The forensic evidence of Tristan’s injuries is unlike any other in the world. To date, the police have followed more than 23,000 leads and have cooperated with the FBI and Europol, among others – but without success so far. A composite sketch of the suspect can be found here.

This website would like to commemorate Tristan in a reverent and dignified way, so that he is not forgotten and his murder may finally be solved.
