Bernard von Bredow lived in Paraguay since 2018. As a teenager in Germany he became famous for having discovered a 40,000-year-old mammoth.

With signs of torture and a bullet in the neck.

This is how the body of Bernard von Bredow, a 62-year-old German violinist, luthier and archaeologist, was found on October 22 at his home in Aregua, east of Asunción, Paraguay.

His 14-year-old daughter Loreena was shot to the stomach in a bathtub at home.

Police reported that they arrested three Germans in connection with the crime and that they believe the motive was the theft of several Stradivarius violins that Von Bredow possessed.
