In the early hours of June 26, 2021, passers-by in Vienna-Donaustadt spotted the lifeless body of a 13-year-old girl leaning against a tree in a green area near the city centre.
After the police published a description, including the clothes the girl was wearing, the parents reported to a police station in Lower Austria and identified the victim as their daughter. Apparently, the parents had not noticed that Leoni was missing until the next day.
After the police started the investigation, two refugees quickly came into focus as the main suspects. The Viennese police chief Gerhard Pürstl announced that the girl had been acquainted with the two Afghan suspects and that she had been in the apartment of one of the suspects near the place where the corpse was found in the Danube city. It is said that she may have been killed there.
During the autopsy, death was found to have been by asphyxiation. It was also determined that she had been murdered elsewhere, not where her body was found. The victim also had numerous bruises and cuts all over her body, particularly in the neck area, and she had been drugged and sexually abused before death. The killers rolled her body in a carpet and dumped it 100 yards from the apartment.
This story, although it happened in late June, has been thrust into the headlines again because of the arrest of one of the alleged culprits in London. Afghan refugee Rasuili Zubaidullah, aged 22, had illegally invaded Britain after crossing the Channel in a dingy and using a false name. There are also rumours that Zubaidullah had been staying in Manchester.
An international manhunt was launched for Zubaidullah, who detectives initially believed had fled to Italy. It is thought the fugitive hopped on a train at Innsbruck before making his way across the Continent to northern France, where he paid people smugglers for his passage across the Channel. At least two of the men suspected of being involved were facing deportation prior to the murder.
Despite being wanted in Austria for murder and rape, he was housed in a hotel at British taxpayers’ expense for almost a fortnight until his true identity emerged. This case has led to anger over the non-existent checks on refugees coming to Britain following the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan.
It is understood Zubaidullah provided Border Force officers in Kent with a false name and other fake details when he entered the country on July 18.
On September 3, Zubaidullah appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court via video link from Wandsworth prison in south-west London to face extradition proceedings. He is scheduled to appear in court on October 1 and faces a full extradition hearing in January.
Once again the silence around this horrific crime has been deafening. No ‘luvvies’ or ‘reclaim our streets’ activists have yet to express their outrage or even pass comment about this vicious attack by older males on a young child.
