The trio - a 53-year-old man and two women, aged 30 and 33 - were discovered on Saturday at a hotel in Passau, Bavaria.

Investigators initially found two crossbows and later another one in a bag.

They were met with a weird and horrifying scene - a 54-year-old man and two women, aged 30 and 33, dead with crossbow bolts through their mid-sections and two crossbows lying on the floor. Both the 53-year-old and the 33-year-old came from the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, according to prosecutors.

Three people who were shot with crossbow bolts have been found dead inside a hotel room in Germany.

Their bodies were found at the hotel on Saturday morning by an employee who opened the door to their three-bed room when they did not respond to repeated knocking.

Two crossbows were already found Saturday.

The man and the older woman were lying together in bed, while the younger woman was lying on the floor.

Key events in the Julian Assange legal saga
WikiLeaks said the re-opening of the investigation into the rape allegation will give Assange a chance to clear his name . The whistleblower denied the accusations, insisting that the sexual relations had been consensual.

A police spokesperson confirmed that the two corpses in Wittingen, Lower Saxony, had not been killed by crossbow bolts, "the modus operandi can not be compared".

The other woman was lying on the floor with a bolt in her chest.

The identity of the women found in Wittingen and any possible connection to the events in Passau have still to be established, police said.

The hotel manager said the three victims had not ordered breakfast, but planned to stay for three nights.

The group left an impression on other guests, with the man wearing a formal suit and sporting a long white beard and his female companions dressed entirely in black.

According to a spokesman for the German Shooting Federation in Wiesbaden, anyone over the age of 18 can purchase a crossbow in Germany, the news agency DPA reported.
