A German club owner who lied about Muslim men groping women in his bar last year was arrested Friday for allegedly killing the woman who helped him concoct the fabricated story, FOX News reported.
The body of Irina Aizina was discovered in a Frankfurt field Wednesday with her face mutilated and about 20 stab wounds to her body, The Daily Beast reported. Aizina appeared to have been dragged into the field and her purse and jewelry were missing, the outlet reported, citing a police report.
The Sun reports that she was the main witness in the exclusive story that was published by German newspaper Gilt, claiming she was “groped everywhere” and saying: “I was lucky I was wearing tights.”
Mai said “50 Arab men” had stormed his bar on New Year’s Eve, groped female customers and stolen their jackets.
The story was published with the headline: “Sex Mob Rages on Frankfurt Restaurant Strip.”
It was soon revealed that the story was a publicity stunt for Mai’s bar – which he was forced to close after the truth came out.
Frankfurt police investigated the claim and discovered that Aizina wasn’t in Frankfurt during the time of the alleged assault and that Mai told authorities security cameras weren’t working when police asked for the tapes, according to Newsweek. Police called their story “baseless.”
The young woman was allegedly murdered by Mai after the bar closed and she asked for her investment money back.
Mai’s blood was found at the crime scene and he was arrested two days later.
Businessman Jan Mai, 50, was arrested in connection with Aizina’s death, The Daily Mail reported. Mai had asked Aizina to invest in one of his clubs two years earlier, according to The Daily Beast. German media reported that the Moldovan mother was set to meet with Mai this week to talk money.
Mai, who was described in the Bild report as a man with “big muscles” and close ties to a motorcycle gang, had recently come home from Dubai with his sons before his arrest, The Daily Beast reported. He reportedly bragged about owning hundreds of apartments and argued with Aizina about money.
Rest in peace young lady.
