German prosecutors shelve Nazi investigation

Munich prosecutors say they have suspended their investigation of an admitted Nazi concentration camp guard, saying they have been unable to find evidence he participated in atrocities.

Prosecutor's spokeswoman Barbara Stockinger says in a year-and-a-half investigators could not find evidence that Alex Nagorny participated in any specific crimes.

Nagorny testified at the recent trial of John Demjanjuk, who was convicted in May, admitting on the stand he had been a guard at the Flossenbuerg concentration camp.

The 94-year-old told the court Demjanjuk had also been a guard at Flossenbuerg — and that he had lived with him in Germany after the war — but that the man on trial had "no resemblance" to the Demjanjuk he knew.
