The 900 men, who were between 14 and 70 years old at the time of Ruf’s killing, have received invitations for a saliva swab test to have their DNA identified. Police officers earlier this month went from home to home to hand over invitations and to answer questions. They also had a stand on the church square in Grevenbroich’s Hemmerden district to inform residents about the mass DNA test.

They explained that DNA traces of the perpetrator were found on the body of the girl and that they’re hoping the mass test will lead them to the murderer. Obviously not all 900 men are suspects, police said.

While it is unlikely that the actual murderer will come forward to offer DNA, investigators hope that a relative may come for testing and through those DNA results related to those found on the girl’s body lead them to the perpetrator, police explained to residents.

The Rheinische Post reported that at 10 a.m. Saturday morning, the first men were already lining up outside the elementary school to get tested.

The new push comes after investigators in 2010 already unsuccessfully tested some 350 men’s DNA in the area. They say since those tests in 2010, they have found new hints that could help them find the murderer by checking the 900 men.

What we know about the killing of former German president's son

  What we know about the killing of former German president's son A 57-year-old man is in psychiatric detention after the killing of a Berlin doctor — a son of late German President Richard von Weizsäcker. Prosecutors have revealed the motive behind the attack. Berlin prosecutors say the suspect in the stabbing of prominent physician Fritz von Weizsäcker admitted to a "delusional general aversion" to the victim's family. However, there had been no prior contact, according to Martin Steltner, spokesman for Berlin city-state's prosecutors office. The victim — a 59-year-old liver and Hepatitis specialist — was the youngest son of Germany's reunification President Richard von Weizsäcker.

Gallery: Mystery deaths that are still unsolved (Espresso)

20 mysterious unsolved deaths: Does the perfect crime exist? Certain murders, deaths, and disappearances that remain unsolved after many years seem to indicate yes. Here are 20 cases that are still a mystery to this day.

Police did not say if any of the 350 men previously tested were part of the group of 900 they hoped to reach now, and they could not immediately be reached Saturday for clarification.

Ruf was kidnapped in May 1996 when she went for a walk with the neighbor’s dog. Her body was found two days later on a lonely path in the fields near Euskirchen. It had been doused with gasoline and burned.

For months, investigators asked the public for help in finding her murderer. Posters of the girl were put up on busses and trains and police distributed flyers. Over a year after her killing, the case was shown on public TV, again asking the public to come forward with tips. A reward was offered and Ruf’s case was the first in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia to get its own homepage at the time.

Earlier this month, Claudia’s father addressed the public in a video and asked them to help solve the death of his daughter.

“After more than 23 years, there’s a big possibility to solve the sad fate of my daughter,” Friedhelm Ruf said. “The perpetrator has been able for too long to hide behind all of us.”
