Posted: Dec 05, 2016 2:00 PM

For the past two years, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has come under tremendous criticism for her open door policy and admission of thousands of unvetted refugees into the country. The overwhelming majority come from countries where rape and using women as property are acceptable. 

On New Years eve last year, at least a thousand women were sexually assaulted by men admitted into the country from terror hotspots like Syria, Afghanistan and North Africa.

Now 19-year-old medical student and daughter of EU Lawyer Dr. Clemens Ladenburger, Maria Ladenburger, has been murdered. Before her death, she was raped. Her attacker is an Afghan refugee who came into the country under Merkel's open immigration policy. More from the UK Express

Maria Ladenburger, the daughter of a high-ranking EU official, was returning from a party in the university city of Freiburg in Germany when she was assaulted on a cycle path.

She was raped and then drowned before her body was found in the River Dreisam.

The shocking incident happened on October 16 but details have only been released after an arrest on Friday.

The suspect, an Afghan migrant, was caught after police found DNA on a scarf near the path.

The scarf reportedly belonged to Maria.

They also found a strand of hair on a nearby blackberry bush.

Officers then trawled CCTV to see find people with a similar hairstyle, which led them to the suspect.

Following his arrest the suspect, aged 17, pleaded guilty to the attack and will be sentenced next year.

Ladenburger's birthday would have been tomorrow, December 6.

Merkel is up for re-election in 2017.
