50-year-old Jan Mai was detained by German police on Friday, after the body of his 29-year-old business partner and mother-of-one, Irina Aizina originally from Moldova, was found stabbed up to 20 times and mutilated beyond recognition, just after they reportedly ‘lied’ about a ‘Muslim refugee sex mob’.
The nightclub owner who claimed a “Muslim refugee sex mob” had run riot in his bar, was arrested over the brutal murder of his former business partner, after the chilling discovery was made by a dog walker at a Frankfurt park.
This is coming after the duo made headlines earlier this year when Mr. Mai claimed his nightclub venue ‘First’ had been attacked by up to “50 Arab” men, during New Year’s Eve 2016, The Daily Beast reported. The men had raided the venue and had groped the hostesses before making off with their jackets, according to Mai’s account of events.
However when interviewed by journalists, Aizina backed up Mr. Mai’s claims, alleging that she had been “groped everywhere“ and further added that she was “lucky she had been wearing tights.”
The accusations echoed a spate of sexual assaults in central Cologne on December 31, 2015. The disclosure left many Germans shocked following a government decision to grant asylum to up to one million refugees the previous year.
However after authorities claimed that the two had simply made up the incident to garner publicity for their struggling nightclub, the subsequent fallout resulted in an embarrassing u-turn by German media and forced Mai to shut his nightclub.
German police say they believe Mai murdered Ms. Aizina when she demanded that her investment be paid back. It is understood that she had been a 50-50 partner in the venture before it soured. Mai had recently returned from a holiday Dubai with his teenage sons and had suggested the pair meet near to the crime scene, police said.
Mirror reported that Mai’s blood was found by forensic officers at the scene, but investigators have not yet recovered the murder weapon. Ms Aizina’s lifeless body was found to be missing jewelry and a purse and had been dragged into overgrowth within the grounds of Franfurt’s Niddapark, officers said.
