Eva Liu’s Killer Sentenced Near Neuschwanstein Castle

A German court gave a U.S. man life for murder, rape, and attempted murder near Neuschwanstein Castle on June 14.

An unnamed 31-year-old admitted to murder, rape, attempted murder, and child pornography at trial.

The Kempten court convicted him, noting his severe guilt may prevent parole before 15 years, atypical for German life sentences.

The attacker lured Illinois residents Eva Liu, who died, and survivor Kelsey Chang off a hiking path.

He attempted to rape Chang, pushed intervening Liu down a slope, then strangled and raped her, leading to her death.

The Marienbruecke, scene of the attack, is a tourist favorite near Neuschwanstein Castle for its stunning views. Built in 1866, the bridge provides prime views of King Ludwig II’s fairy-tale castle.

This tragedy has overshadowed Neuschwanstein Castle, a 19th-century palace visited by over 1.3 million people yearly.

King Ludwig II built the castle, famed for its Alpine foothills location and inspiring Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle.

The case sparked discussions on tourist safety in tranquil, historic areas. It reminds us of violence’s unpredictability and the vital need for justice post-tragedy as families grieve and celebrate survival.
