In a poignant turn of events, the lifeless body of a 26-year-old Romanian woman, missing since mid-August after being swept away by the turbulent Mur River in Graz, was recently discovered in the vicinity of the Mur Power Plant. The enigmatic disappearance had ignited deep concern and prompted an exhaustive search effort.
This tragic saga unfolded when vigilant passersby first spotted her in the unforgiving waters of the Mur. Despite persistent and tireless search operations, involving boats, divers, a police helicopter, and drones, her whereabouts had remained shrouded in mystery. Authorities had even gone to the lengths of releasing a photograph of women’s summer shoes discovered along the riverbank, desperately seeking any leads, but these endeavors yielded no breakthroughs.
Weeks of relentless searching reached a sorrowful climax over the weekend, with the discovery of the sex worker‘s lifeless body, not far from the Mur Power Plant in Graz. Consequently, an autopsy was conducted to illuminate the circumstances surrounding her tragic demise.
Preliminary findings from the autopsy suggest that the 26-year-old Romanian, a resident of Graz, likely met a watery grave in the Mur. Nevertheless, definitive conclusions await further meticulous chemical analyses. The young woman had been employed at a local establishment known as the “Laufhaus.” Early indications point towards her death being the result of a tragic accident, as investigators have found no traces of foul play.
As the investigative process continues to unfold, the community and the grieving family confront the painful reality of their profound loss. Our deepest sympathies and thoughts are with them during this trying and sorrowful time.

Amsterdam is considering plans for an “Erotic City” in the Zuidoost district, aiming to centralize the city’s sex industry and improve conditions for sex workers.

In Stuttgart, a brothel owner has won a court case against the city regarding the Prostitution Protection Act. The court ruled that certain requirements of the Act do not have to be met until a final decision is made on the permit application for the existing brothel.
