Booby Traps In A Dead Man’s Garden Pose Safety Threats

News

Authorities in Germany say a retired gardener who was found dead last week has left booby traps behind to target his enemies.

59-year-old Bernhard Graumann is believed to be posing a risk to the public from beyond the grave.

German police issuing a warning to anyone who many have had a conflict with him, after a series of attacks have left one person dead and two others injured.

Authorities say a dentist was killed by a bomb that Graumann apparently planted.

The retired gardener is also suspected of rigging a piece of firewood that exploded when a woman put it in her stove, injuring her and her 4-year-old daughter.

Police say all three victims had been known to Graumann, who either had a personal or business connection to the individuals.

The attacks took place in the West-Palatia region, located close to the border with France.

Graumann was found dead in his bed Friday.

Investigators are probing whether the 59-year-old poisoned himself.

They also found gunpowder and weapons while searching his house.
