    From the link: "A forensics team initially had trouble examining the scene because all the light bulbs in her apartment had burnt out and had to be replaced with the help of a ladder, Keiblinger said."

    What the heck? Can that be done on purpose?

    I wonder how long she'd lived there? If she had just moved in it may explain the lack of furniture and the burnt out bulbs. Could also be that she just didn't have access to a ladder.

    Police and firefighters who forced open her door Tuesday evening found her half-naked body on a mattress on the floor in apartment that was sparsely furnished

    One of the articles said she'd lived in Vienna for three years. I didn't see mentioned anywhere how long she'd lived in that specific apartment.

    She was sharing the apartment with a Gambian immigrant who was in Austria illegally, and police were looking for him. The nature of his relationship with Mann was unclear.

    Lots of info and pics here:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...der-probe.html

    Including that police have one theory as Lauren suffocating from a sex game gone wrong, and also that it might be weeks before her body is released to return to the US. They're also theorizing that the light bulbs weren't replaced for lack of a ladder, although the superintendent of the building lived across the hall from Lauren and all she had to do was knock and ask, the landlord said (see all at link).

    Illegal immigrant arrested over murder of Lauren Mann

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...rage-girl.html

    An illegal immigrant has been arrested over the murder of an American nanny who had given him shelter at her Vienna apartment.

    The 24-year-old Gambian had been wanted by police since the death of Lauren Mann, 25, from Grand Junction, Colorado last month.

    He was arrested on Thursday in Bern, Switzerland, at an asylum center there after his mobile phone use was traced.

    CBS is finally realizing there's been an arrest... they do have a bit of an update on the extradition process for the suspect:
