As the Bad Segeberg police announced on Friday, a farmer first discovered the old man’s golf in a ditch on Thursday and a little later the body in a grain field.

A spokesman then said: “The public search for the 97-year-old, who has been missing since July 18, will be withdrawn.” For the time being, it is assumed that the dead man is the missing man from Bad Segeberg.

“A reliable identification can only be made after the forensic examinations have been completed,” it said. According to the current state of knowledge, according to the police, there is no evidence of third-party negligence.

The missing person case had aroused particular public interest because the father of the 97-year-old, Johann Ludwig Graf Schwerin von Krosigk († 89), was Finance Minister of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler († 56).

In addition, his niece was the AfD politician Beatrix von Storch (51), who grew up not far from Kisdorf and was actively involved in the search for her uncle. Shortly after the disappearance, she launched a public appeal on Facebook and promised a reward of 1,000 euros for relevant information.

On Friday evening, the 51-year-old tweeted and confirmed her uncle’s death: “My uncle has been found. Many thanks to everyone who helped with the search and for all the sympathy. We can now say goodbye. “

Segeberg’s district president, Claus Peter Dieck, told the Abendblatt that he was dismayed by the news: “We are all very sad that we have lost our ex-district administrator.”

Count Schwerin von Krosigk was a defining personality for the Segeberg district. Dieck expressed his condolences to the family: “We mourn with the relatives.”

Between April 1, 1966 and July 3, 1990, the deceased was district administrator and lived in Bad Segeberg. He was considered one of the longest-serving local politicians in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein.
