BONN (Reuter) - Investigators said they had closed the file on the death last year of Germany's Green Party founder, Petra Kelly, saying she and her lover ended their lives in a suicide pact. The decomposed bodies of Kelly, 44, and her 69- year-old companion, Gert Bastian, a former army general turned pacifist, were found in their Bonn residence on 19 October. Bonn prosecutors said the circumstances pointed clearly to a death pact by the couple, both members of parliament, apparently for personal reasons.
