A few hours ago, a court in the German city of Bochum sentenced young Marcel Hesse, nicknamed the ‘psycho killer’ in Germany, to life imprisonment for butchering his 9-year old neighbor and an online pal before sharing pictures of their dead bodies and the murder weapons on the Dark Web.
In doing so, the court followed the demand of the public prosecutor who had claimed that given the sheer brutality of the crime, the defendant could not be allowed to ever walk free again. Thus, he was sentenced by the Bochum court to life in prison with a "conditional preventive detention", meaning that he is not up for early parole.

Prosecutors said that a panel of psychologists had concluded Mr. Hesse’s crimes were committed "to satisfy his sadism."

The first act was to lure his nine-year-old neighbor to his basement where he stabbed him 52 times. He took pictures of himself with the murder weapon, and a multitude of the dead body of the young boy and posted these online via the Dark Web, bragging about what he head don. When a 22-year old ex-school friend confronted him about it, he murdered him as well, stabbing him 68 times.

The head of the police investigation unit claimed that Mr. Hesse was "cold and very emotionless."
