It was a shock for the relatives of Willi Herren († 45): After his death, his lifelong dream was in flames. The Ballermann star opened a food truck shortly before he died. As pictures showed, this one burned down. Now it turns out: the investigators suspect that the fire was set on purpose.
The Cologne chief public prosecutor Ulrich Bremer, spokesman for the responsible investigative authority, explained the “image”: “According to criminological experience, we assume deliberate arson.” The evaluation of communication data at the crime scene provided evidence of this. “We look at who was there in the radio cell at the time of the crime and also evaluate video material that has been seized,” said Bremer.
Investigation against unknown persons
No one has been arrested at the moment: “We are still investigating the initial suspicion of deliberate arson against unknown persons.”
The snack was a big dream of men: together with his business partners he sold potato pancakes in “Willi Herren’s Rievkoochebud”. For the grand opening there was a show of trash TV stars: «Celebrities under palm trees» colleagues such as Henrik Stoltenberg (24) and Calvin Kleinen (29) posed for the photographers in Cologne, among other places. For the former “Lindenstrasse” actor, the food truck was an opportunity to reduce his debts. (bsn)
