On Monday martial-arts fanatic Hesse lured a nine-year-old boy called Jaden into the cellar of the building where he lived next door and stabbed him 56 times. 

He took video and photos of the murder which he then posted on the 'Darkweb' of the Internet for lurid perverts to enjoy. 

A massive police hunt across Europe ended for him in the town on Thursday evening.

Near to the fast-food place a burning flat was discovered. German media said the corpses of two people were found in it and that Hesse is the suspect.

It is believed he was hiding out there while thousands of police officers combed the continent for him.

Reinhard Peters, lawyer for the family of Jaden, said: 'The family is relieved that he has been captured alive to await the full punishment of the law for his crime.'

Jaden was found in a huge pool of blood by his stepfather.

'The picture of my stepson lying there dead....I will never forget this,' said Pascal R., 34, who found the boy dead from numerous stab wounds on Monday evening. 'I found him lying in a giant lake of his own blood.'

Police say Hesse, a martial arts fanatic, lured Jaden into the house and then into the cellar where he recorded his brutal murder. It is unclear whether there was a sexual motive.

Detectives on a specially formed murder squad believe he may have killed another person. They said he appeared on an Internet chat room in the hours following the killing to say he had attacked a woman., adding; 'She offered more resistance than the child.'

He mentioned 'torture' to get the woman's bank details and pin card number.

Hesse had lived in the house where he killed Jaden for many years with his parents, but he was home alone since the beginning of the year with his sister Sandra after his mother and father moved.

Jeanette F., 41, mother of Jaden, told the Bild newspaper in Germany; 'Sandy told us once that her brother was an absolute psycho.'

Pascal R. went on to tell the paper; 'We had been shopping, my wife and I. Maurice and Steven, his stepbrothers, and Jaden stayed at home.'

He said at 6pm on Monday evening the doorbell to his home rang. Hesse was there and he asked Jaden if he could come to his home to help him set up a pair of ladders.

He went with him. The parents returned home two hours later and Jaden had not returned home. 'I went over and banged and yelled but no-one answered,' said the stepfather.

'Something bad has happened,' Jeanette remembered saying to her husband. It had; Jaden was murdered with more than 40 stab wounds.

Pascal and his stepsons clambered over a balcony wall to enter the cellar area of the house where Jaden lay. 'I wanted to give him a massage on his heart but blood was streaming from his wounds,' he added.

Police later said as the boy was stabbed multiple times Hesse filmed his demise and posted video and stills on the so-called 'Darknet' - the lurid, unpatrolled side of cyberspace specialising in pornography, paedophilia, drugs and 'snuff' movies.

It was a Darknet user - who claimed to know the killer - who was upset by the images of the little boy who contacted police to tell them; 'I have just seen a boy murdered on the Internet.'

The killer also entered a chatroom after the murder and held his bloodstained hands up to the camera.
