Police: body found in lake may be that of Liechtenstein ex-fund manager sought in banker death

GENEVA - Police say a body found drifting in Lake Constance may be that of a former Liechtenstein fund manager suspected of fatally shooting a bank's chief executive earlier this year.

German police say a fisherman found the body Thursday in the lake, which Germany, Austria and Switzerland share. It was close to where the Rhine river, which flows through Liechtenstein, enters the lake.

Liechtenstein police say jewelry and clothing found on the body indicate it may be that of suspected shooter Juergen Hermann. An autopsy is scheduled Monday.

Police launched a manhunt for him in April after Bank Frick CEO Juergen Frick was shot in a garage. They said at the time Hermann's passport was found near the Rhine with "handwritten notes confessing to the crime" and indicating he committed suicide.
